Brown Argus at Penhale, Cornwall


Brown Argus' were plentiful this evening.  These two posed nicely on top of the plants and allowed a nice soft background.  The weather was humid and misty which gave the light a strange cast.  The upside to this is that the exposure was perfect and required no post enhancements.


Both of these shots were taken in Aperture Priority at about five inches distance.  I had to increase the aperture to F/18.  The downside of this was just 1/40s shutter speed.  I switched the lens VR (vibration reduction) on and this coupled with the tripod enabled an in focus result.  The focus was set to manual to stop the lens hunting.
