Like a Potato... I Have Many Eyes

I'm still going through my archived photographs, which is actually kind of fun. I get to rediscover some photographs which I initially passed over, and I get to see how I've progressed with my photography. For example, this photograph is from when I first got my DSLR (Sony a350). I was, obviously, still learning about things such as depth of field, which is why the background in this photograph is too busy. Since then, I've learned how to use depth of field to help me focus on the subject and blur the background.

Regardless, I like this photograph, because this is a butterfly (Wood Nymph), which I don't have many photographs of... busy background or not. Also, this is a "first" for me photographing this species of butterfly. So, it's a keeper, in my opinion! Besides, it has memories, because I can still remember very cautiously (so not to scare it away) climbing through the ditch and weeds to get this butterfly's portrait.

Great job on capturing that photo!


Very nice 'keeper' photo of the Great Basin Wood Nymph. Wait, you're in Missouri...maybe it's a Small Wood Nymph. Nope...can't be...too far east. I guess it can only be a Common Wood Nymph.

Still, nice photo 8v)


Lovely composition and details. Happy Macro Monday.


He's a beautiful butterfly! :0) I love looking back sometimes. :0)


Your photos are beautiful! Love it... and it doesn't look busy to my untrained eye. I scrolled down and I'm really impressed with your work! Great job.


Nice photo:) Perhaps companion piece of potato could say, "like a butterfly, I have wings". But then you'd have to slice out wings on the potato and....never mind...
