Although it’s been so cold I’m not sure this can be called summer. Still after photographing mainly in studio for a long and cold winter it was time to get some fresh air for the camera in a form of couple of photo trips. With fellow photographers one of the trips headed to Botania, botanical and tropical butterfly garden that had nice selection of butterflies. I’m surely going to use those in composite images later. Parrot was photographed through a steel cage with full aperture. I handled both parrot and butterfly pictures like a portraits and replaced the backgrounds to suit more to my taste.
