P1030830 Mid-Day Butterfly

P1030830 Mid-Day Butterfly

You can't choose the time of day a butterfly is going to show up. I just happened to put the 45-200 Panasonic lens on my GH2, and found that although this butterfly was very cooperative and hung around for at least 50 shots, the light was just too harsh. I also found that for some reason I can't figure out occasionally the GH2 just refused to focus, even though I put the focus point on a contrasty area.

You controlled the contrast very well and I see nothing wrong with this even though it was mid day sunlight.

It looks stunning to me Isabel, especially the red color, which is so difficult to get right.

What a beautiful shot. Great combination of colors and good depth-of-field. Good detail in the shadows without blown-out highlights.

Fantastic subject, superb composition and I like the frame as well.
Great red-tone of the flower.
