I took this colorful photo this past weekend. I've seen more of this variety over the past several days.

I liked the photos that I have been getting but feel like I can sharpen the image if I use a tripod. I hope to give that a try today.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Hi Paul,

a nicely composed photo, and good colour as well, especially good is the BG red colour allowing the colours of the butterfly to contrast well. I agree with you about getting a sharper image by using a tripod, however this subject I believe moves constantly making it difficult. You could try using a higher F stop for greater depth of field and some lenses also have a VR (vibration reduction) feature that generally ensures good sharpness.
