This morning, my "Butterfly Wing 2" picture won Imaging Resource's "Photo of the Day". CLICK HERE to view Imaging Resource's Photo of the Day page.
This photograph was captured late last year. I positioned a small flashlight to the side of the butterfly to help bring out the texture of the wing. I used my Nikon 200 f4 Micro lens with an extension tube to get really close to the wing. Two of the pictures that I captured during that photo shoot were recognized with a "Photo of the Day".
This marks the 85th time that one of my photographs was recognized by Imaging Resource as its "Photo of the Day". A photographer is limited to one winning entry per month, so this series of winning images stretches back more than seven years. Click here to view all of the winning entries.
