Took these with the Olympus 1010. I didn't bring the Canon D40X on this vacation.

Beautiful! I've never been there, but must go someday.

Great butterfly photos. Do you know what kind they are?

No, I don't know the types of butterflies. Sorry. There is a butterfly exhibit that is totally amazing. There must be ten thousand butterflies with each one being prettier than the next.

If you do go to the falls, I recommend staying on the Canadian side and visiting the American side for a day. You should see both sides as it looks very different. The butterfly attraction is in Canada.

Thanks for the compliments.

I was worried about bringing my Nikon D40X because of the mist and humidity but I did bring the Canon GL1 for video (go figure, the video camera cost a lot more). I just didn't take it on the Maid of the Mist attraction. In hindsight, the D40X would have been safe. I erroneously called the Nikon a Canon before. I guess I needs some sleep.

These are impressive shots, Klaa!

It's been many years since I have visited the falls, ....when I was working in Toronto.

Thanks. The falls and all of I saw of Canada was beautiful. Everyone should visit. There is so much to photograph. I was amazed at the beautiful flower beds and attention to landscaping. A cab driver told us that tourism was down by more than 2 million this year. That's a shame.

Yes, we did. But, I am embarrassed to say that none of the pictures came out good enough to post. I was more concerned with video and only took some stills without a tripod. They came out blurry and a mess.... Guess we'll have to go back soon. :-)

I'm going to have some good video up on Vimeo soon.
