At Rosy's, 2003

For this year's display I couldn't remember how to set everything to manual.  I ended up getting impatient and started snapping, anyway.  I don't think these turned out near as good as the ones from 2000.  Many were badly overexposed.  Still, some are kind of interesting, so here's a bunch.

As before, the thumbnails link to a medium-sized version of the image.  The large versions, this year, are not as long a download, but they still don't fit onto most moniters.

Aug 2004: Interestingly, this picture is one of only two pictures on my site that have been leeched by others.  One person is using it for a personal site and three others have used as the background for their journal.  I've never seen it within the first several pages of the search engines, but for the last few months I've seen several people come from Yahoo with the search of "butterfly."
