Butterfly | by Richard-

Sharon, Connecticut. The Sharon Audubon Center has over twenty injured raptors that we love to visit from time to time. The bald eagle is magnificent as are the great horned owls.


This summer, on our way to the raptor cages we passed a small butterfly garden and given that we had some rented camera gear with us we figured we'd spend some time there.


This was shot, handheld, with a rented Canon 1D IV and my macro lens. I thought this camera might be too big and heavy for me but in fact, it's a joy to use and feels quite good in hand. The images it can produce in the right hands (not mine) are stellar and I can see why it's been a popular camera.
