Butterfly in the Grasses

This weekend I climbed up to Las Trampas ridge, about 2500 ft elevation overlooking the San Ramon Valley. While the views were nothing great owing to overcast and haze, the butterflies and other smaller parts of the trip were. Had to wait a long time for the wind to die down enough to get a clear shot, but it was worth it for this image of a butterfly perched on the dried grasses. I really like the effect of the Lensbaby on the grass while keeping the butterfly sharp.


About the shot: Handheld, +4 diopter on a Lensbaby Composer at f/5.6, cropped
