    Default Monarch on Sedum

    Rather than the typical 'monarch on a cone flower' theme, I tried to capture this very common but attractive butterfly in a non-traditional pose with wings slightly up and shooting at the save level as the insect. The use of aperture priority, evaluative metering, and fill flash provided a good balance between the background and foreground exposure. Overcast conditions offer the best opportunity for creating images like this one.

    Canon EOS 30D, Canon 300mm f4.0 + 1.4 converter, ISO 400, f10 and 1/80s; Canon 580 flash at -1 2/3, RRS flash bracket, tripod mounted, location-Wisconsin garden.
