Macro is my favorite shooting style. My T3i and T4i make great macro images (sometimes photoshop comes into the equation, too), and I look like a nature photographer.
It’s all about appearances, right?
So here is a butterfly that showed up today. I have been waiting for these guys.. seems like they are late, but I finally got one on my butterfly bush this morning.
Pretty sweet, huh? You can see why I like doing this kind of photography.
Close by, there was some phlox with awesome light, so I snapped that as well.
Now, you may be asking why I did not use the new Canon Rebel T4i to shoot these photos, right?
Answer: I was outside working in the yard when the swallowtail showed up.. I was sweaty and dirty, and my T4i was upstairs, but my T3i was in the basement. So I grabbed the closest one. Image quality is the same with both in bright light. No problem.
