About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Red Admiral

I was quite pleased to find this Red Admiral in an open field. I went for the flowers- the butterfly was a bonus!


  1. An amazing catch for sure. Great focus on the flowers and butterfly. The soft background really brings them to the front. Well done!

  2. Wow, truly a bonus, the white flowers show off the dark colours of the butterfly beautifully. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

  3. Great captures - I'd be thrilled to make a find like that and have the equipment to photograph it so well...

  4. I especially like the bottom photo - everything is clear, nice soft bokeh. Beauty!

  5. So nice! The detail in the antenna is particularly fine.
