The Because Project 4

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 10 September 2017 in Animal & Insect.

On the ground next to my Butterfly Bush was this swallowtail, as we were setting things up.
This a series that documents the day we had the fundraiser at our house.
I used this series as an opportunity to experiment with HDR, texture, artsy, B&W and other enhancing techniques.
I value your comments

SONY NEX-C3 1/320 second F/6.3 ISO 1000 200 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

The butterfly has had a bad luck. The shade of the picture is warm and bright.

He has gorgeous color. I find it sad at the end of the summer that the butterflies look so battered. They are such beautiful little creatures. A lovely image.
