It is no secret how hot it has been across the nation this summer and I have not been out much taking pictures, certainly not as much as I would like. So when I saw my D800e sitting on my desk for another weekend I decided to experiment in my own front yard.
We have a ever changing assortment of butterflies that come to the half dozen Spirea bushes in our front yard and I enjoy trying to capture these butterflies as they move from flower to flower. Getting my D800e and my Nikkor 24-70, I headed out into the yard.
Although a tripod would be better for tack sharp images, I wanted to see if I could catch them in action and went handheld. Imagine my surprise for twenty minutes work, I came away with this image
