Butterfly Up Close

By WeeGeordieLass
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.

Has a rather startled expression, must be the sharpness of the orange. This is a wonderful capture, one I like very much.

Lol Peter...have to agree -

...it looks like he's saying "oooooohhh, there's orangey!"
An outstanding macro capture, Elaine. Great colours, comp, & DOF.

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! Sad
