I Forgot To Shave Today
Hi Ron,this is a very nicely detailed photo of the butterfly and the exposure is excellent looking as nowhere are there any overblown areas and the shadow details all look very good as well.The scales can been seen very well, in this tight crop as well as those tiny and fine fuzzy hairs ,that always make me think of pipe cleaners for some reason.Photoing insects as the day cools off or first thing in the morning is best as insects are sluggish in cool temperatures but as you have indicated tend to be hard to find.Thanks for sharing this bright and colourful little critter with us and those pink legs are fantastic too !
Hello Ron, this is a great true macro!
Excellent macro portrait, in fantastic sharp details.
Very beautiful clear and contrasting colours against the dark green BG.
Details incredibly captured very well. tfs.
Amazing macro capture of this l'il pretty fellow. Depth of focus, light, contrast all of them wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
A nice capture of this beautiful butterfly's closeup. Sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Absolutely outstanding detail in this shot, the light brings it out nicely. The tight crop works for me too, lets you really see this butterfly's "face" nicely. Very nice color too, the red, green and yellow make for a pleasing image. A very minor quibble: I would have liked to see a bit more depth of field. With your full-frame camera, I wouldn't hesitate to close down to f/22 even. With some carefully-applied unsharp masking it should yield very sharp results even at that f/stop.
What lens was used for this? Is this a majorly cropped image to get the close-up?
Very nice extreme profile closeup Ron, fine details.
The dark green of the BG really helps to set-off your b-flies head here.
Great color and use of flash to fill.
Well done & have a nice weekend my friend!
This is a real macro! Superb, amazing..... details in fantastic colours. The contrasting BG is very good. Excellent choice of composition.
Have a good weekend,
Great use of your camera as a microscope! This is really close-up. It's amazing to see these details and textures which we rarely notice. The yellow, rust and green colors are wonderful against the excellent darker green background. After dark doesn't work for me - there's been a strange looking bobcat visiting lately.
WOW! Not at all like the Ron of old...simply lovely with cute and appropriate title. Wishing I could get that close and still see those whiskers clearly.
Excellent close, the detail and exposure are on the money. Nice work.
This is very impressive. Not at all what I expected from the thumbnail! Details are amazing. Gary
Another stunning portrait macro capture of a butterfly taken from an excellent POV, your composition have worked very well with the background mF! Grat work Ron!
TFS and have a nice new week!
