Aphrodite Fritillary

  1. Took these with my 200mm f/4 micro. I was glad to have the Aphrodite Fritillary visit my cone flowers.

    Birgit,
    These are all beautiful, but # 3 is my favorite of the set.
     
  3. I agree with Paul, outstanding!! Number three is my favorite too! Please send the fritillaries down to Maryland!! LOL!!
     
  4. Thank you. There has been a scarcity of butterflies here this year.

     
  5. I agree with Paul and Crystall, but #4 is favorite, so I guess, I don't agree!!! :)  Great set Birgit...

    A very beautiful set Birgit. A great use of a great lens.
     
  7. Another vote for #3. Lovely shots, Birgit.
     
  8. Well I will have to agree, # 3 is very good, but the whole set is great, and the light on 4 makes it stand out.
     
  9. The sharpness of #3 is great but I wish there was a tad more room in front of the butterfly. I like #4 as well. I like them all actually, just trying to pick my favorite :)

    excellent work. #3 is my favorite...haha these are pretty much 10x better versions of what i just went out and took
     
  11. Thank you. I like the "wind" in #4. Every time a car drove by, the flowers would blow in the breeze, the butterfly would leave and come back.

    Thank you Torben. I hope you are enjoying yours!

    Thank you.

    Thanks!

    Thank you Linda. I always have the originals, can crop #3 to show more room on the right. I agree with you looking at it again.

    Oh you will get there. Takes practice:wink:
     
  12. Great shots. I really like #3.
