A Spotted Fritillary settles for the evening... lit up like a lantern against the setting sun...
Utter perfection on every level! I love the light coming through the outspread wings. I beauty of an image! Patti
So beautifully captured Tim...as per.
Hope all is good with you
Staggeringly beautiful light Tim.
This is stunning pin sharp detail and wonderful colour,
Simply sensational Tim, you've caught this beautiful butterfly in such wonderful light and the point of view is excellent
Sooo beautifully captured....but still free...
Once again the back lighting is showing off the rich colours and detailed patterns in the wings so well.
Such wonderful light, as always your butterflies are superb..............Sandy
absolutely wonderful colour and detail, the lighting is great
Marvellous back-lit shot. Colour, detail, and background all great.
Great back lighting!
This is superb, love the point of view
Superb Tim, lit to perfection. Ron.
Really very good and well worth the awards.
Awesome work Tim!
Do you use any support for these shots, or are they hand held?
Thank you all for your extremely kind comments! and especially Ed and Gemma for the UAs!
Roger thanks, I like the freedom of no support, just elbows and the ground. I tend to be crawling around in awkward positions to get these shots! but there is the trade off with sharpness, my shots are more about light and certainly far from pin sharp.
If I didn't have the stabilised lens things would be much worse!
Awesome as always Tim......I'm just getting back into the swing of things now after being ill once again, nice to see all the usual butterfly suspects including your good self still posting....
Fifty up. Well, you know I like this kind of backlit shot so well done Tim ! As you say, it's all about light.
