photoblog image Butterfly

Butterfly

I had always wanted to take butterfly shots but just never found one. My wife spotted this while we are at the beach front last weekend, so half of the credit for this shot goes to her :)

On shots like this I normally will use a telescopic lens or a macro lens just because I am not a fan of close crops, but I have to admit that I am impressed with the crop here.

I really do need to go out and take shots like these grin

Sweet sweet capture
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Suby, I will really like to see you do one of these, fingers crossed smile
You must have a trunk load of patience. Insect rarely cooperate with me.
Gorgeous shot. The shape of the butterfly flows so naturally from the flower.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Micheal, I was just lucky to get this one.
