Cheapside, TX - 12 Apr 2019 See on Google Maps
In a field with plenty of time I spotted this butterfly hanging on some weeds. He (or she) was only about 6 inches off the ground so I had to get way down. It was overcast so my ISO was high. I was trying to get enough depth of field so F10. This is using a macro lens a 100mm so on my stomach I began taking pictures for a distance. The butterfly did not move so I inched forward - closer and closer. The macro lens is great - but, as with any prime, you have to move to fill the picture.
