Above, I tried to place the butterfly in the corner to take advantage of the shape of a butterfly's wings. Not bad, considering how quickly I had to snap the shutter! Not sure if I'm explaining myself well or if you can see what I tried to do? Below I inverted the butterfly on Photoshop. I think this trick works well with metallic objects and black and white photos; however, I like this image nonetheless.
Finally, I chose to create an image of the entire butterfly with no alteration whatsoever. I had so many other ideas but wouldn't you know the butterfly had better things to do! I took about twenty five images in 30 seconds. I also would have preferred if the butterfly had landed on a flower or something more attractive but again the subject doesn't always cooperate! An unlikely find at Walgreens, this butterfly was flying around a construction area. Who cares that all those workers wondered what the hell I was doing...get back to work!
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore
