Butterfly Series - Part 1 : Green and Black

Earlier in one of my posts (Basics of Camera), I had explained how I was unsuccessful in capturing a picture with my Sony compact camera. I went ahead and purchased a Canon 550D DSLR. I was finally successful in capturing a butterfly in close up. I am enjoying taking pictures of butterflies as it is a challenging task. Butterflies have a specific season in which you can see them in abundance, there are specific places such as ponds where you can see them, there are specific times in the day when they take rest and most importantly they fly away as soon as they notice you. Therefore you need to move without making the slightest noise as close as possible and get your best shot. This will be my first post on series of posts on Butterflies.

This was a nice photo of a butterfly with its wings spread apart. The wings were probably damaged after flying across trees for months.

ISO: 1600
Exposure: 1/200 sec
Aperture: 5.6
Focal Length: 49mm
Flash Used: No

I could have improved the photo with a smaller aperture.
