Pipevine Swallowtail

I chose not to place this photo in critiques because I feel the background isn’t as pleasing as I would like, but I wanted to display this beautiful butterfly. By this time of year, many butterflies are usually showing a lot of wear-and-tear, but this girl is nearly perfect. I am guessing she has just recently emerged.

Please list any pertinent technical details or techniques to help others. Canon 60D, Canon 70-300 IS USM Zoom @ 220mm, f/8, 1/350 sec., ISO 1000, Ev -0.5 step, Hand Held. Processed in Canon DPP and Photoshop Elements 12.


She is looking in perfect condition. A real beauty, Terry.
