    Black Butterfly 2

    Black Butterfly 2 Do you think this pic is sharper than the first black butterfly.

    Sorry, Hamon, it isn't. The focus appears to me to be on the flower.

    How are you focusing?

    Hello Harmon.

    Looks to me like the front part of the flower and the butterfly's lower left wing are in the same focal plane, just barely missing getting his face/eye in focus.

    Looks like you had a fast shutter speed going on for this one, so you could possibly sacrifice a bit of that to stop down your aperture a bit for a deeper depth of field. Might try using your AF center point and shoot for his eye instead of manual.

    A lot of times after a shot like this I'll check it on the camera's LCD and zoom it way in to see if what I had hoped to get in focus actually is in focus. Sometimes its still hard for me to tell looking at the back of a camera seeing as I am blind in one eye and can't see too good out of the other! And butterflies have the attention span of a fly when it comes to modeling for us!

    Well, hindsight being 20-20 and all!

    Sure is a beautiful creature, though!
