Beauty Under The Wing


The beauty of the underside of a Red Admiral butterfly, possibly even more stunning than the more familiar view of the top of the wing.

(Would be a better photo but it was taken through the kitchen window this evening, well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!)

Mating Flies


These photos were taken yesterday. While I was having lunch I saw these flies mating through the kitchen window, obviously I just had to get the camera out and shoot off a few shots. Technically not fantastic as they were all taken handheld with a macro lens, never the less not too bad. I must admit that I have had to do a lot of cleaning up of the background, so I guess I better get the leather out this afternoon and clean the damn windows!

The first image is from inside and the other two are from the outside.

The following 2 images were processed in Photoshop from a sequence of 4 images to give an HDR effect. Both images were given the same HDR processing but the second then had a couple of ‘Artistic’ filters applied.

The camera settings were Canon 5D MkIII, EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM, 1/250, ISO 5000 at 40mm and the apertures were F9 EV+1, F13 EV 0, F16 EV-1 and F18 EV-1.
