The Butterfly

Insect imagery. This represents the need for shallow depth of focus to isolate the insect from its background. A dedicated macro lens with extension tubes can work but I prefer a greater subject to distance factor to allow me to capture the butterfly without scaring it away. For this shot I used a Minolta 7D DSLR with a 2.8 70-200 tele lens at 2.8. Note how the image plane of the insect is sharp and the background is thrown into a complimentary de-focused blur. This can not be done with most pocket or non DSLR digital cameras. They are terrific if you want a deep focal plane. Jeff
