    BBB - Birds, Buterflies and a Bee...

    Dear shooting fellows, here are some shots from this afternoon. This is my third continuous outing with a clouded sky, so I had to work with ISO a bit on the high side and use flash on some . Anyway, better (sunny) days will come! C&C welcomed, as always. Thanks for viewing!

    #7 - This place was really dark, in the middle of woods. I had to raise exposure, work on lights and shadows, increase bright, so the final result is that the image is a bit soft. Anyway, I liked the way this couple were hanging on this branch and included it in the set.

    Really nice pics. I love overcast days to take pics. I have all fast lens and the sun is not my friend. You did great. Love #2.

    Great set Otavio. I like all the butterfly captures but #2 is the pick of the bunch.

    You should repost that comment about the sun and your fast lenses to the "General Photography Discussion" thread if you want to elaborate.

    Otavio, the sun is not your friend, and the flash is not your enemy, as shown by these excellent examples!! Bright but overcast days can produce amazing results! Nice work.
