Impression of Fritillary

Impression of Fritillary

Two years ago, the Jekyll Island Commission planted wildflowers along the causeway out to the island, and when I visited in October, they were in their prime. Fritillary migration was also at its peak, so the flower expanses were were filled with butterflies. I got a lot of excellent portrait shots of butterflies (and bees) on the flowers, but this chance shot really pleases me. “I could not have done it if I had tried.” Sometimes chance is better than any amount of calculation.

Sony DSC H9 at the wide end of the macro zoom. F4.0 @ 1/100th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Nothing much more than a bit of crop, some Vibrance, and some Sharpening in Lightroom.
