STOPS ALONG THE WAY

FASCINATOR

17 Comments

I thought the Pearl Crescent butterfly perched on the flower looked like a fascinator you might see at a cocktail party. The tilt of the butterfly, the position of its wings and the richness of its colouring created this illusion. Only its face and the flower are in focus, I would have needed a larger F stop to have got all of its wings in focus. But in this case I don’t think it mattered.

  1. Very striking – and I agree, not having all of the wing in focus is immaterial.

  5. Beautiful! I’ve never seen this type of Butterfly. I love the shallow depth of field and focus on it’s face.

  8. I think I’ve seen Pearl Crescents here in Southern MD already this year. Not close enough to see for sure.

  9. So I had to look it up… your all natural version beats out the images Google displayed, many looking like they belonged on the Jetsons. Very nice colors and texture in your image.
