This was a view from the Canyon Overlook Trail at Zion National Park in Utah. Since it rained most of the time while we were in Utah, the sun was definitely a welcome sight ️!!

imjustabill Hey, Everyone!
I'm super-excited because I got featured in an article on the @bhphoto blog !!! B&H Photo in NYC is actually the largest non-chain photo store in the US!
.
They're celebrating "Macro Photo Week" and I was picked for the "17 Talented Macro Photographers to Follow on Instagram" !! Crazy! You can see the whole article by going to @bhphoto and it's currently the first article in the link in their page.
.
Thank you to Todd Vorenkamp (@trvphoto) for selecting me, and congrats also to @karlathompson (my friend and neighbor to the North) for also being chosen!

  •   imjustabill @jeanniegphotos Thank you so much!! I was so excited by the mention in the article, but really blown away by everyone's response to it!! But to answer your question, no I rarely ever use a tripod, most of my shots are handheld. 2d

  •   wild_garden_of_eden Super Cool, congratulations 2d

This is one of those quintessential Zion views looking south from the Canyon Junction bridge. It's and easy hike, too. About 20ft from a parking spot !!

– Edward Abbey

It had rained the entire day that we arrived at Zion National Park in Utah, so we started our first hike the next day just before sunrise at the Canyon Overlook Trail. When we reached the top, the view was completely covered in clouds. But as the sun rose, the clouds slowly pushed away revealing this magnificent view of the lower Zion Canyon!

imjustabill I'm back!
.
Just got home from vacation in Las Vegas! We actually spent very little time in Vegas. Most of our time was spent visiting the parks in the area like Zion National Park, Valley of Fire, Red Rock Canyon, and Hoover Dam. I came back with just over 2000 pictures to sort through !!!

imjustabill Road to Zion
.
I'm on vacation!!! We flew to Las Vegas last Wednesday and then spent 2 nights at Zion National Park in Utah. It rained most of the time but it was still amazingly beautiful! Now we're back in Vegas (and have cellular signal!) for a few more days. This is a quick iPhone shot and edit. I can't wait to share more pictures from my camera!

  •   imjustabill @razalas Thanks, Sue! I didn't know that you were from Utah! Even though the weather was crazy (we had rain all 3 days and even hail) it was so amazing to see! I would definitely go back to Zion and also want to see more of Utah! 3w

imjustabill Rusty Tipped Page Butterfly
.
I saw this butterfly at the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium in New Orleans. Honestly, it's not nearly as impressive as the Cockrell Butterfly Center in Houston. It had some fake plants and mostly artificial lighting, and admission was double the price. I guess I'm spoiled having such a great butterfly center close to home !!

I found this bizarre purple flower at the butterfly center. Sometimes the flowers there are every bit as exotic as the butterflies! I have no idea what it is though!!
