Chocolate Chip Cookies
We baked some cookies tonight, they were quite delicious! Bounced my flash off the wall on the right for the lighting. The pattern under the cookies is a silicone baking mat.
For yesterday's photo, I think dedmanshootn is right - it's a crane fly. Fotoeffects, I'll try and check sometime next week and see if that plant has information posted to it. Almost all of the plants in the botanical gardens are identified, but I usually forget to take note. Thanks for the input!
