A Swedish Lifestyle in Metro DC. March 2011.

New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade. March 2011.
I went to NYC to celebrate Bug’s first birthday, and luckily my trip was during the Parade. I saw thousands of flags marched up 5th Avenue to commemorate the fallen of 9/11. I played with the shutter speed to get this picture of the face of a firefighter with smeared American flags around him. It invokes a sense of chaos and patriotism that ensued on that day in 2001.
Butterflies at the Smithsonian. February 2011.
I went to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s Butterfly Pavilion (free on Tuesdays!). Here are a few photos – for more, see my post, Wintertime Thoughts of a Ladybug and Photos of Butterflies.
My little Ladybug loves mirrors. She’s not vain – just a baby.

Critters abound in our yard, doing good for gardens and photos. Here’s a selection of sitings during the summer months.
