Butterfly - Close-up (Not true Macro)

Post by Reciprocityrules » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:42 am

I didn't want to post this in "wildlife" because it's an insect....You guys all know me, and this thread isn't really overrun. Anyway - the Milkweed were in bloom! 150mm, f/5.6, 1/640, ISO 200. (Oodles of resolution to spare, so it's more detailed)

Thanks Rod....I got to spend some time behind the shutter. I did mow and build a new ramp to the shed for the mower, but I had a few opportunities to escape into photography; it was well needed. Just as a reference, here's my milkweed patch. The smell is wonderful, and the insect activity is consistent. I hope to put a few more patches like this around the place. Pretty much heaven for me.
