'Creeping' by Irena-N-Photography 'Creeping' by Irena-N-Photography
:D OK, enough of snapshots from vacation - time to return to *normal*. :giggle:


:butterfly: Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, one of my favorite butterflies, is finally showing up around here. :laughing: So I am stalking the critters whenever I see them, hoping to get some nice shots without scaring them away. :lmao:

Excellent detailed shot! And it's nice to see a butterfly from this perspective; I love the profile! This is a lovely photograph.

I have the same problem here too in the tropics --trouble is they're so fast--best way is to find the blossom they like & they'll stay longer there

Fantastic Macro! Stunning steadiness of camera I always seem to get some sort of blur LOL..
This really is a brilliant shot, Well done!

:aww: Thank you very much for the compliment. :bow: :bow: :blushes:

:D With shutter speed higher than 1/125 sec there is a good chance to avoid blur from unsteady hand but it's always good to have it supported - I usually place my elbow on my own knee (and hold my breath when releasing shutter). :D
