Sunday afternoon butterflies

After driving around and shooting Black& White photos all weekend it was nice to find a colorful subject to shoot at home Sunday afternoon!

Keep Makin' Art

Fantastic, Carl. How do you get the butterfly to sit still for long enough to get that shot?

This from a non-photographer. I'm sure there's a technical answer.

Excellent captures and great DOF Carl.

Victoria Fatum said...

Wonderful colors, Carl!

Carl said...

Thank You Victoria and Janice!

Elisabeth. I bump up the asa so I can use a higher fstop at a faster speed. It is more forgiving that way.... I still get plenty with a butterfly half out of the frame, but I am getting better with practice.

Lovely photos! =)
Patience seems to be key when shooting butterflies, at least it is for me. I read somewhere that staying low and making sure that your shadow doesn't come near them helps, but this far it has never worked for me. =/
