    I saw this little guy perched in my garden and tried to get a decent shot before it flew off. It was a pretty overcast day, with very flat natural light and no background separation, and before I knew it I had a couple of bare speedlights setup. Key light camera right and slightly above the subject, back light from behind and camera left to illuminate the wings.

    Nikon D500 w/ AF-S 70-300
    300mm, f/11, 1/250s, ISO 400

    Any feedback or CC is welcome, as I am always trying to improve!
