I took this shot last week, but am sharing it now in the hopes that it will brighten your Monday!
I took this at the St. Louis Zoo, which is very nice and also free. This butterfly was kind enough to hold still for a bit and I was also using my tripod. I have noticed that when I have both my camera and tripod a lot of people stop and talk to me. If you are a tripod user, have you noticed that as well?
The butterfly is centered in the frame because it was a digital photography assignment that required the subject to be in the center. I did also bump up my ISO to 400, because I thought it captured the color detail a bit better than the shot I took at ISO 100. I also had my f-stop about mid-range. I wanted to make sure to get enough detail, but I wanted my background to be a bit out of focus so that it was not a distraction.
