Thistle and Butterfly by Sarita Yeola

October 2021 - Thistle and Butterfly

About the Image(s)

This photo was taken beginning of August in Atlanta, GA. At this time the pink thistle were blooming everywhere that attracted the tiger swallowtail butterfly. I cropped the image a little, cloned some leaves out at the bottom right corner in LR and reduced noise using Topaz Denoise.

Nikon D500: 500mm, f/8, ISO 900, 1/200

The detail on this Butterfly and the Thistle is magnificent! Beautiful. Your cropping is very pleasing and the line draws you right into the thistle. WOW!!!   Posted: 10/11/2021 13:38:00

Sarita, Sharp image, the background really lets the subject standout and show off the colors. I really enjoy the composition/crop. I like how the thistle comes out of the bottom corner, the wing tip in the opposite corner and finely how the swallow tail the head are aligned with opposite corners.   Posted: 10/15/2021 20:42:27
