I went to Butterfly World today. I didn’t have a lot of time to spend there, but I was able to snag this shot of a butterfly enjoying the nectar of a sunflower. I took several shots, mostly at high shutter speeds to freeze the motion of his wings. He was very energetic, though I did get some shots of him sitting still. When I finished the series I knew I had gotten my shot for the day. The almost radiant background is not a Photoshop trick, it was done in camera with the 100mm macro lens’ ability to blur the background, so it just came out that way.
