19-NOV-2005 Petesie Lee


Wimberley, Texas

I've been trying to capture a Buckeye all season...this one let me
take several photos, but the light was much too bright. The Copper
Canyon daisies did not freeze, I'm happy to say, and there were several
varieties of butterflies flitting about today.

Nikon Coolpix 4500
1/132s f/7.0 at 16.2mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

I think it turned out very well, in spite of the strong light (not having seen the sun for what seems like days, I can hardly relate! :) ) I think what really makes this work is the balance of light in the shot overall. Congrats on the capture!

WOW! Love the oranges and yellows ... such a 'summery' feel to your image! :)

I'm glad that you were able to capture the Buckeye up against your colorful daisies. The butterfly is beautiful.
