Very strong sunlight and the background was a bit of a challenge! The light colours you can see are in fact my work shirts which I definitely didn't want focussed. Shallow depth of field, but not too much otherwise I'd get hardly any of the butterfly in focus. The pose of the butterfly was quite nice too. I have shots from the rear looking at its wings, but this image pleased me more. Sort of a "ready for take off" type image.
Don't forget to click on the image then you'll get an enlargement of the picture. You'll get a chance to appreciate how sharp the 50mm lens can be. Let me know what you think.
Hand held, 50mm, f4, 1/2000sec, ISO 200
