Day 135 The Birds and the Bees

It is officially summer and the the birds and the bees have started to do their thing. Ok, so this is a butterfly and a bee, but butterflies have to do their thing too.

I didn’t realize how hard it was to photograph a butterfly.  This one, as I am sure most do, liked to fly (usually, just as I had focused in on it) and when it finally got settled on a flower it kept opening and closing its wings…my autofocus did not like that at all.  So I switched to manual focus and tried again. Again the butterfly moved to a new flower, which apparently was not good enough, so it moved to another, and again it opened and closed its wings.  Finally, my patience paid off and I was able to get a picture, and not just of the butterfly but of a bee too.

Adjustments: cropping, hue, contrast, saturation, vingette

Until next time,
