Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Female - Are you looking at me? - img_3054

    Newer Older

    This butterfly had me mesmerized as it flitted about in my zinnias. I set the camera to AV mode and hoped that in the bright afternoon sunshine the shutter speed would be fast enough to get some good shots. I do wish the photos were sharper, but I'm still pleased with the results. I took quite a few shots, this probably is not even the best one. While taking the shot, I felt as if this flying beauty was sizing me up and it amused me:-). To see the rest of them, check out my photostream, there are about a dozen shots of her there. I could have taken many more, but the sun was starting to burn my arms, so I reluctantly went into the house. The photo session in my yard was a nice break from my busy day and gave me a bit of inspiration which I have been sorely lacking for awhile now.

    SolarScot. and Grethel07 added this photo to their favorites.
