A couple from the butterfly garden yesterday.
Thanks for looking.
Beautiful butterflies and nice shots. #2 is my favorite.
Very nice , number 2 is great
ya i love 2
I go with #2 with reservation because I find the white blown out.
I quite like the first image, they both really stand out which is good
Thanks for all your kind comments. Butterflies have always been an elusive subject for me. Both figuratively and literally.
Very nice. THe second is my fave as well - wonderful colours! (nice avatar as well )
I like them both! Neat picture. What lens did you use for these shots?
Meh, all my images are being shot on a Sony DSC-R1. Pretty much a glorified point and shoot.
Yes, they are both great shots! But #2 is fantastic in composition and color.
I love those colours and lighting in that first shot - a few strong whites, but not too distracting and it blends well with the overall shot. Great subject and good shooting!
Second shot shows that same good lighting and good focus on the head and eyes of the butterfly.
The backgrounds in both suggest that your using flash as well as as lighting source I think.
As for hte camera - looks more than just a glorified point and shoot to me - and it gets you good results too! A bit of control on those tricky highlights and your there!
