Eye Contact with the Butterfly

Yogendra Joshi - Macro Magic

Eye Contact.

Comments / suggestion / bricks welcome

The butterfly was hanging upside down in a bush.. so had to approach very slowly that too with camera UPSIDE-DOWN and not letting the flash / diffuser get stuck in the bush or disturbing the butterfly.

If i had taken the shot in normal position.. there would have been a shadow of the grass twig under which it was sitting falling directly on the butterfly.. so taking the camera upside down was the only way...and its fun to try and focus and click in that awkward camera position 

Canon 550D + Sigma 70-300 (@300mm) + Raynox DCR 250
Light: camera mounted YN467 with diffuser
Exposure: f/22 || ISO:200 || 1/200s
