Description

This tiger swallowtail butterfly was feeding on just-planted Martha Washington geraniums in a pot on our deck near Durango, Colorado. She was so intent on feeding that I could approach very close with a 60 mm Micro Nikkor lens and make multiple, hand-held exposures. This image was captured at f5.6 and 1/125 sec.

For the PG101 "Letter L" June 10 Challenge

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/125 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 640, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 60.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300
