Overcast and very pleasant day, perfect for a quick (and fruitful) lunchtime shoot at Green Spring Gardens. This is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on a ‘Zowie’ Zinnia. I wish the edge of the right wing was a tad sharper, but I had to move quickly to even get this shot! Stay tuned, more images to come.

Yet another photo that takes my breath away, thus making it impossible for me to make a comment.

C’est la vie!

Followed the link on Mike’s blog post. Lovely shot! it is difficult to get all the butterfly in focus, especially a large one and using macro. I focus on the thorax to get the head/body sharp and quite a small f.stop, better still step back a bit and crop the image.
