Here is one more shot from the cool store called Allen’s Boots in downtown Austin. I gave it a Fractalius touch and here is the original HDR version…below. Both cool…so a double shot…Texas style!
While at Krause Springs in Spicewood, Texas…near the entrance they have a small butterfly garden. You can find a few fluttering around. Up on this cool looking plant/flower was this beautiful Swallowtail Butterfly. The flowers were about 7 feet high so I was using my 105 Macro hand held to try and catch some photos. He was a bit skittish, but was used to me in about 10 minutes. The tough part was that it was breezy and these tall flowers were blowing in the wind. A great challenge photographically! I tried shooting manual and increased my shutter to 1/250 of a second. Only a few shots came out. As it always goes, this was my first photo. The rest were a bit blurry. A breeze or wind is a tough one in macro photography. I was also curious to see how a butterfly works with fractalius and here is an extra version! Enjoy the doubleshot!
I just grouped all my Fractalius photos together in a gallery on my web site here… Talke Photography
