IMG_0158 Didn't intend to buy this butterfly bush....

But it was so covered with insect activity (mostly very small butterflies and one huge bee, that we had to bring it home. It isn't planted yet, but already attracting insect activity with it's lovely aroma and attractive blossoms. This image is a good example of why it's good to shoot in raw - I grabbed the camera when I saw the butterfly and didn't have time to adjust anything except the ISO. It was WAY overexposed (from fill flash that hadn't been moderated) and I was able to correct that in Adobe Camera Raw.
