I forgot to go take some photos of plants and animals until relatively late on Saturday night, but this ended up being a blessing in disguise. I went to the greenhouses in the Benson building, but they were locked. However, the security guard let me in. None of the lights were on in the greenhouses, making for quite the challenge in shooting (the only flashlight I had was my iPod), but it also offered some great opportunities. (Particularly, to learn how to adjust my camera’s focus one-handed, while shining a light at the subject with the other.)
