Random Wildlife

I went out to the garden hoping to catch some butterflies with the Sony camera.  It has a zoom lens but it’s a short range affair.  Sony tacks on a digital zoom at the end of the optical range but the camera switches over to an area focus that is less than optimal for butterfly hunting.Here’s a swallowtail at the extreme end of the zoom.  The photo has been cropped a lot and is not in good focus although an argument could be made that it is “artistic”.A moment later and another butterfly landed on the next zinnia over.  Happy chance that it lit so the outer wing was visible, contrasted with the inner markings on the first.
