    1. I tried capturing this flower but it seems like the bulb at the top is what focuses well. Is white a hard color to capture?

    2. This was my favorite of a butterfly.

    3. This was a bee I captured. I wish he would have faced me lol.

    read up on the rule of thirds (no centering) and other composition "rules"

    The first is a tad under exposed

    I agree with bigtwinky, but still.. the second shot is beautiful, if you could crop the photo to get red of that leaf (?) on the right it would be fantastic!

    Like number 2, all the colors (including bokah) go so well together. Number 3 looks like a hummingbird clearwing moth. Mine only come out in the evening.
