Monarch butterfly garden

These photos are what inspired one of the big paintings I did for my exhibition. You can see what I created here. I absolutely LOVE these photos.
Recently, I have been saving for a new camera and in less than a week I will own the camera that I took these photos with. It is the 600D. I am soooo excited! Since I will be new to DSLR cameras, there will be a lot to learn. If any of you have any good tips or links to awesome sites, I would love to see them! xobec
