Butterfly on Liatris (kk_pinit9, Pinlight 51%)
This butterfly was around the garden most of the day on Monday. It was really hard to get a picture of it as it would move when I moved, I had to get the shot from the chair with my lens at 250mm. The ISO was at 400 which adds to the grain on the original picture to the left. I love the impressionist background of the above photo with the bee balm blossoms. I used a mask to "paint" the butterfly and the flower its on back in. This is when I am glad to have a tablet instead of a mouse to use in photoshop elements!
Once I took the pictures, I looked at the butterfly magnified and saw that one of the wings was damaged. That's probably why I could never get close to it.
