Butterfly Portrait
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:51:48 PM »
Portrait of a Painted Lady Butterfly

I love the detail of the fur on this butterfly. Macro photography really allows you to see some amazing things.  I grabbed the camera quick as my daughter held this butterfly on her finger.

Shot with a T1i with EF-S 60mm macro, 430EX flash, and Rogue flash bender soft box kit.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
