I was beginning to get concerned. I had not seen many butterflies this spring. Last year, they were here in droves. Triple teaming the Azalea Blooms. This year, I’d see one or two fluttering around but I never came across one making a pit stop on an Azalea or anything else blooming. And more to my agenda, I didn’t get even a bad shot of one. Perhaps they got a better deal on spring rates elsewhere. My luck changed a bit while taking a quick walk around the perimeter of one of the fields.
There were several of them working the grass which survived the spraying of a week or so ago. I’m no expert on butterfly identification (If you happen to know what this is, please leave a comment.) I just like to photograph them. Problem was I couldn’t get as close as I wanted. Wrong lens. The 300mm is my lens of choice for butterflies but alas I had only brought the 200. “As the old saying goes, ya dance with what brung ya.”.
It’s called “Duotone”. It’s designed expressly for Photography Blogs and since that is what I am attempting to do, I figured Why Not! It’s most salient feature is the matching of the dominant color of a photograph with the background. The downside is it only allows one picture per post so those earlier posts that were written to two photographs read a little strange. The new look is quite striking though so I thought I would try it a while. See you soon on most of this same blog.
