Victoria Butterfly Gardens (Part 2) - Central Saanich, BC

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy viewing this chain of posts!

Black and white process of the photo above. 

A photo of the Eclectus Parrot (Eclectus roratus) standing on a tourist's shoulder. I gave her my email and offered to send her the full resolution photo if she emailed me. I never got an email. :) If anyone knows her, please let her know the offer is still there. You can find my contact information here. If you are reading this, sorry I had to give it to you on a Post-It note. I haven't made any business cards yet as I rarely do people shots. :)

Here are 2 more shots of parrot and the tourist.

Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas)

Giant Owl Butterfly (Caligo eurilochus)

Tailed Jay (Graphium agamemnon)
