Feeling A Bit Bug Eyes...

I took this picture of a Dark Green Fritillary 3 weeks ago while walking up Arnside Knott, a beautiful part of Cumbria especially if you’re into your nature and landscape photography.


The technical information of how I took this photograph;
Lens: sigma 18-200 @ 200mm, Aperture: F.8, Shutter Speed 1/1250. ISO: 800

After I had taken the picture, I sharpened the picture slightly to sharpen the detail, and added a black faded border.

When I found this butterfly, it was sat in a bramble patch warming it's self in the morning sun, not bothered by my presents I took the opportunity to take a few shots from different angle that you wouldn’t usually get the opportunity to get.

TIP: When photographing nature try getting down to your subjects level, such a simple thing but it can change the whole look of you picture.

Thanks Lee Harrison, Happy Days and Happy Snapping.
