Had a lesson today in just how difficult it is to get a sharp hand-held macro shot of a butterfly with the focus just where you want it.
In the end patience and persistence paid off, and I hope you think I did a reasonable job...this was one of my best attempts - many more shots were binned!
Thanks for looking.
A beautiful portrait - well worth your perseverance!
Well done Elaine - that was worth waiting for
Has a rather startled expression, must be the sharpness of the orange. This is a wonderful capture, one I like very much.
Great macro. Well captured.
Thanks for taking the time to comment everyone...
Lol Peter...have to agree - Quote: Has a rather startled expression, must be the sharpness of the orange
...it looks like he's saying "oooooohhh, there's orangey!"
An outstanding macro capture, Elaine. Great colours, comp, & DOF.
I think this is a brilliant image!
Worth all the trouble!
Excellently done, Elaine - as you say, difficult to get the right part of the subject in focus in macro work, moving just a fraction of an inch backwards or forwards and it's gone!
