Posing for a Quick Capture!
Smugmug Daily Link
Hopefully you guys can tolerate one more butterfly picture. I don't think I've ever posted 3 butterfly shots in a row! I've just been on a mission to capture the best Swallowtail on those Yoshino Cherry blossoms that I could!
Here's the original. You can see that I fixed his wing and tried to warm up the shot and bring out the colors a bit as well as clean up the noise. I still don't feel I could quite capture the same beauty as I could have if the sun had been more cooperative.
We had more cloud, wind, and rain yesterday, so I was pleased for a few minute window to capture more butterfly shots. The flower petals on the Yoshino Cherry tree are fast falling now:-(
It's so interesting how the flowers go from white to a pretty pink color as they finish up their springtime glory.
The azaleas in my yard have started to bloom too. I just might have to turn my attention to chasing butterflies on them now:-)
I'm back to work today for the first time in quite some weeks. Was it February? I have reconstruction surgery in about a month and some time off over the next 3 weeks for the boys' trackout from year round school but otherwise the challenges of the daily grind return.
