Butterflies in Flight from Tsuken Jima Okinawa
When rainy season starts giving me cabin fever, I go through old photo files.
With thousands of travel photos stored on external drives, I can always find something.
These butterfly photos gave me some inspiration today.
Rice Paper or, Paper Kite Butterflies were flying overhead on Tsuken Island.
Every now and then, we get some beautiful weather during rainy season.
It was during the month of May, two years ago, when these photos were taken.
Butterflies, in flight, are a real challenge for the photographer.
It's a good thing I saved these photos.
They cheered me up and, reminded me, it's time to make some travel plans.
It's just a short ferry ride, to Tsuken Jima (island) and it's a nice one day trip.
It would be a good idea to start paying attention to the extended weather forecasts.
Butterflies aren't the only things that come to the island on a nice sunny day.
Did you know, they have girls in bikinis sometimes, too ?
It's easier to photograph butterflies, though.
They don't require model releases.
If you plan on going there to shoot girls in bikinis, you better ask for permission.
Being sort of shy, I'd rather shoot wildlife.
But, I'll pack a few model release forms, just in case !
