A few of my favourite things..

Shadowy Butterflies

From a photography point of view, they are just one more example of my novice status.  I have no idea why my on camera flash didn’t respond to the lighting conditions.  When I ran outside chasing these little treasures, it was into bright sunlight, but butterflies being what they are, they didn’t stay there for long.   Once in the shadows, there was no going back for my big flash, no time to experiment with camera settings, just mad crazy focusing attempts.

I know they are not masterful examples of the art of photography, but I can’t help liking them all the same.  When I catch butterflies mid flight, I just marvel at the strength of such frail looking beings.

  2. Like Wildstrom said..I like the movements in these shots too. Give it some filter effects and you’ll have some Modern art classics! 🙂

  3. I have to agree, even though they are blurry, I really like them, especially in a collage like this. Wonderful series.
