    Default Beautiful Butterfly

    Took this picture at the Hort Park.

    While taking macro of flowers, noticing the butterflies, and just then, this one came by, no time just click a singular shot of it resting to have its "lunch".

    Your C&C very much appreciated.

    Aperture priority at 105mm



    Really appreciate your views.

    Thank you

    the most beautiful part of the butterfly is actually the wings. also, it is almost a must to see the eyes for insect macro unless it is a special composition.

    here the eyes are obscured, and the dof is too shallow, which is why most butterfly shooters advocate that people shoot parallel to the wings, you will get the right focal plane for the wings and eyes to be in focus, and everything else out.

    also note the distracting background, got one big yellow thing. it stands out actually, but with that fighting for attention, the effect is lessened.

    Thanks for the comment, noted, but it's really hard to catch them, for this shot, it was just a fleeting moment, and it's gone, so didn't think too much about the eyes, which has already been told to me before. Will work on it. Thank you again for the comment.
