"Wildflowers aren't meant to be cut & tamed. They're meant to be loved & admired.” - Anthony T. Hincks

The month of May is a wonderful time for nature photography. So many subjects are abound like migrating birds, insects coming out of hiding, and wildflowers break through the earth. In this image I used an extension tube to show an insect on a small sprout of Fleabane. The midday lighting provided sufficient lighting. Shots like these are all about waiting for the right moment.

I would recommend if you wanna photograph a butterfly or any insect landing on a flower, use manual focus. By prefocusing on the spot (use a tripod in this case too) and waiting for them to come to you, your chances of succeeding are greater than trying to chase them down. This will also teach more patience as you sit in quiet observance of the wonderful planet we all share.
