I went out for a little shoot, but had mostly disappointing results. There was only one photo that I really liked. It was this butterfly perched on a stalk of long grass. I just think that it goes well against the background and I like the butterfly’s wings.

A distant honorable mention would go to this sunflower. I like it mainly because it looks happy and I think the square crop works well.

Then there was a bee, but I don’t think it reads well against the flower.

I’ll get out again soon. Tell me what you think in the comments.

  1. I like the bee shot anyway. The yellow of the flower compliments the yellow on the bee, giving me a strong impression of yellow. Leaves me feeling cheerful. Or cowardly, I’m not sure which.
    But I do agree that the butterfly shot is the best. It’s a beautiful butterfly, in my view, with all it’s different colors, the sleek outlines of the wings, and the polka-dotted body.

    1. That is a very common butterfly around here. I don’t know if I will be able to find Hilda again. I watched one similar to this emerge from a cocoon in my front yard last year.

      I like sunflowers too, especially against a blue or partly cloudy sky.

  2. I like the square crop of the sunflower. My wife’s got a row of giant sunflowers growing nicely so they should make for good photo projects over the next few months. ( I can also see them as I’m typing this so I won’t have to go far! )
