"You lookin' at me?"
Garden visitors:  Photographs of what flowers and gardens attract:  Hummingbirds, Butterflies, Bees, Caterpillars, etc.  
Many of these were photographed in my own garden and backyard ... others like the tropical butterflies were photographed
in Cleveland's fantastic Botanical Garden's Costa Rican Cloud Forest.  

I offer all these photographs printed on high-quality photo paper, the much popular canvas, as greeting cards or a digital
file download
. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
