ID workflow: butterfly proboscis

Recommended Posts

Does anyone dispute this ID?

If so, correction appreciated!!!:

(unsharpened, focus too shallow to license?  too soft to pass QC?)

 

Florida, Gainesville, Micanopy, Paynes Prairie Ecopassage Nature State Park Preserve,

Pontia protodice checkered white southern cabbage butterfly, proboscis,

It's always about the eyes. The eyes have to be in focus. Unless something more important is in focus, but it must be very clear that that something is the main subject.

I shoot a lot of butterflies, and I wouldn’t upload this one. As Wim said, the head/eyes must always have the critical focus.

i won’t get into ID because it’s unnecessary. 

You can compare yours to what I have...you should find some in my first 5 pages or less. 

It looks to me like the sharpest focus is in the plant head near the bottom wing. QC will see that.

Betty, just looked at your shots and noticed that you've got Pentas lanceolata mis-spelled as Penta lanceolata.  

Hope this helps

How did I miss that? For cryin’ out loud. I probably have a few hundred images to fix. 

Thank you so much, John! All mistake-catching welcome.

I agree with Betty (albeit I hardly shoot butterflies) and wim - also for my taste the image is too soft.

Being usually overcritical , I would bin it.

I also agree; the photo should be binned.

 

I had to make a hard choice just today and tossed out a pic of a herd of deer escaping into the woods. I was sure the eyes of the last animal, the only one whose face could be seen, were sharply focused. However, looking at the picture again tells me they are soft. I'm very disappointed, as I really like the picture, but it just isn't good enough.

Well, that took about 3 hours to fix! Glad to have them correct.
