[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been so busy with school that I haven't been shooting as much as I usually do. I was surprised a couple of days ago when I walked outside to get my mail and saw this large butterfly just off our front porch. Took this in auto mode, but sharpened and adjusted a little for brightness, contrast and color.
I also cropped as I had him centered in the frame, so this way I show a little of the rule of thirds. I have been working diligently on not taking shots in automode, but this model was moving so much, I was afraid that I would miss him if I was messing too much with the camera.
