Perhaps some of you will remember the lyrics of the song Butterfly, “wait for me don’t fly away”. Well, it was in a completely different context that I was saying something very similar at Kirstenbosch Gardens last weekend :-). I wanted to try out a new close up filter I’d just bought, and headed off to Kirstenbosch to see if I could find something interesting to shoot. Well, I stumbled upon this butterfly, who seemed to get a bit of stage fright as the camera made its appearance.:-). Working with a very small depth of the field was a challenge, that was complicated further by a gentle breeze. Nevertheless, I was very determined and waited for the moments when the butterfly settled on the flower, and the breeze abated so I could carefully focus and take a few pictures. Maybe not as sharp as I would have liked, but it was a victorius challenge for me anyway :-). Victory is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the butterfly are my response to the prompt….
………….the journey continues…………………….
