I love butterflies
i do love number 3
I agree, good job on number 3
Composition is not perfect on some of them but how do you get a butterfly to cooperate. Technically all the pictures are very good. Fine use of DOF and lighting. You could make a great puzzle out of the second and third one. I like the colors of the first best but the plant got in the way.
I know, he just wouldn't come out from behind that leaf and we aren't allowed to touch them! Lol.
#3 is the keeper.
The first two are over exposed and poorly (sorry) framed.
Taking pictures of animals/insects is very difficult (as with many other things that are alive and that move...).
To get a great picture of a butterfly it requires a lot of patience (a lot lot) or a lot of luck.
The light in the first two images is too harsh making it nearly impossible to expose properly in the short amount of time you've got.
If number 3 is sharp I'd be offering it as a wall print.
I agree with this. Number 3 is really good and would be great if the whole butterfly was in focus. Keep trying.
Beautiful! How did you get the colors to turn out so dark and vivid?
I think #1 looks like he's peering over the plant.. it's kinda cute from that perspective, but it sure had some vibrant colors.
All of them look great though!
I used my 50mm 1.8 lens which is the best investment I have made for my camera to date. I shoot in raw too which is awesome for adjusting color levels. Here are a few more...
