A Fresh New Arrival...

I took this picture yesterday while walking around the disused sand plant at Marshside RSPB Nature Reserve.

"Six Spot Burnet Moth"

The technical information of how I took this photograph;
Lens: sigma 18-200 @ 200mm, Aperture: F.8, Shutter Speed 1/250. ISO: 700,

This was a very opportunistic photograph, I was walking around photographing butterflies and moths but to find one so fresh, still drying out on its chrysalis was pure luck but I am very happy with the picture.

TIP: When I am photographing any type of nature, I am very particular about the eyes, for me the eyes must be perfectly in focus because if you focus just in front or just behind the eye it will stand out a mile off and if you get a glint light in the eye it will bring a whole new aspect of life into your picture, such simple things but it can change a picture from average to something a bit more special.

I hope that you like this picture and you might find these tips slightly useful,

Thanks Lee Harrison, Happy Days and Happy Snapping.
