Monarch on a Throne of Orange

Dan I think your shot of the butterfly is beautiful. Though I am partial to photographing butterflies. May I ask, did you manipulate this picture in anyway since it is with a digital camera? #85089

Hi Stan,

Thanks for your comments. The only manipulation done was to adjust levels, color saturation (only a little), and some Unsharp Mask. The glow of the Lantana was as a result of another bloom behind the first which was out of focus because of the shallow dof. As you no doubt noticed, the tips of the wings closest to the viewer are slightly out of focus as well. Thanks again for taking time to look and comment! #319339
