A lot of people travel to take photos. I am not a traveler. Plus we are on a budget! I have captured some really nice images just walking out my backdoor. Butterflies,flowers,bees,raindrops,ladybugs….the list goes on! About 3/4 of my images are taken in my backyard. Once you start looking you’ll be surprised at what you can find.
I spotted this ladybug walking on a leaf . I was able to get quite a few images before she flew off.
After a rain is my favorite time to shoot.
I love to see what is reflecting in the rain drops.
(technically it is called refraction)
Or just raindrops on the subject can make a nice image also.
I have just one butterfly bush and have had many visitors! The butterfly bush is planted right out side my kitchen window. I was slicing and dicing veggies for dinner when I saw this one. So I grabbed my camera and headed outside. Dinner was slightly delayed but did make it to the table:) Word of caution if you have something cooking on the stove turn the flame off before you head out. Cooking and taking pictures at the same time = pizza night!
I used my 70-300mm lens and external flash to freeze the motion. It was a little windy that day. The gray background is my house. Award winning photo maybe not but I like it!
So start looking around, grab your camera and start shooting!
Hey! That’s my butterfly…at least there are the same amount of flowers as there are bugs!!. Nice pics cuz!
It is! I haven’t seen one since. Glad you approve of the ratio of bugs and flowers! I thought of you as I was uploading the pictures. Thanks!
