Brown Butterfly

Brown Butterfly

3rd in the macro series. This tiny little butterfly didn’t really co-operate as far as pointing his head towards the lens. If I could have taken this shot again then I would have used a narrower aperture – say f9 – to get more of the body in focus. Of all the macro series, this was the only one that was conducive to a monochrome output – in this case my favourite chocolate duo-tone.
