First attempt

By waltknox
My first try at some Butterfly photography, the Echinacea bloom had seen better days but the Butterfly was in good shape.
Bravo to all you talented Butterfly photographers ... it takes patience , I admire your skills
Thx for your support on my last upload and special mention of thanks to Colleen for her Award, enjoy the weekend everyone
cheers walt

Really good image, never mind a first attempt.
Good clarity and colour.
Perhaps consider a slightly closer crop to lose the trellis on the right?
Well done to get this shot with a 50mm lens!

A damn sight better than my first attempt, WaltSmile
Just watch your aperture, not a lot of DoF when working close, especially at large aps..
Be careful though, once you get the bug....Wink

This is special Walt---- Your focus on the butterfly is perfect---good to get the eyes and face done so well-- the bg--receding into rather off is all important as it does not take away from your subject!

They seem to like the coneflowers!

A good dof for highlighting the main subject matter, Walt, which is nicely sharp and colourful.

I'd be very happy if I could produce close-up work of this calibre Walt, even after many attempts.
