Red-Spotted Purple Butterflies

Since we are following stay at home guidelines these were taken on a photo walk at Plainsboro Preserve last year to look for dragonflies. We only saw a few dragonflies and most were very worn looking. But then we saw quite a few Red-Spotted Purple Butterflies. I was shooting @ 600mm and for closeups I did a series of different focus points and then let Photoshop align and combine the sharpest areas into the final image. The featured image was 3 shots, the one below was only 2 before it flew off.Red_Spotted Purple_Butterfly v1_PP_76A5316

    • Thanks Belinda! Butterflies are fun to photograph! Plus it is nice to practice handheld multi-image photos! The more you do, the better they come out.
