I enjoy shooting photos defined by their contrasting images. Take this “new” butterfly landing on a large nasturtium leaf next to the shadow of a decayed leaf.

A wet winter and spring has produced a record growth of nasturtiums in our yard–that’s the good news. The bad news/good news is that nasturtiums attract insects away from our other plants, so when the weather warms up, the undersides of these giant leaves will be weighted down by spittle bugs and the like. I don’t use pesticides given that we have bee hives in the backyard–I simply remove the infected leaves.  Go organic!

On a final note: I still have trouble spelling “nasturtiums.” I forget the “r” sometimes.
