Lunch w/ bugs

I took a quick lunch today and then took a walk to the edge of a nearby field. Lots of butterflies, grasshoppers.and weird plants.

I did some shots to practice manual focusing on the dslr on the fly. I'm loving the manual control on the XTi compared to the Powershot G5 I was using before. It's tough to autofocus on a scene like this with a point and shoot...they tend to scope in and out on all the leaves. Hand focusing with the SLR lets me home in on things like moving bugs with a great amount of control.
