I know it's not real sharp and the exposure is blown, but it was so pretty and i'd like to know what kind of butterfly it is if anyone knows. seems to have a bit of damage to is left wing.
Gale, I bet you are right...Dao will know!Gale said:DAO,
KNOWS :>)) he will be around.
I saw some shaped like that at the butterfly garden. The good ones were to far away and the reggedy ones were close. Go figure :>))
How did you catch him still. Good grief I chased my first butterfly for 1/2 hour trying to get a snap.
Thanks Vinod. He was at an angle, i think he was maybe 3"across?...hard to say. Thanks for the ID.Vinod Menon said:Nice shot Leigh, I believe this is a black swallowtail...it looks much wider here probably because of the angle you took it at.
Greg, this was taken w/my CoolPix 8800. I still haven't taken anything w/the D2H yet. Patrick's like that the way I am about my cooking gear! lol He doesn't touch my Kitchen Aid mixer and I don't touch his D2H....although I'm starting to get antsy to try it out!Greg Giesing said:Probably kin to the A-10 Warthog. It can fly with holes as well.
Seriously. Great shot. Love the leg detail.
Was this with the D2H? Have you tried PS/image/adjustments/shadows and highlights? You may be able to get a bot more out of the black.
