Head On | Baltimore Checkerspot | New York

I really like this photo. I think it is a pretty unique look at a butterfly species that at least I don’t see or photograph very often.

This is the Baltimore Checkerspot.

I have only had the opportunity to photographs the Baltimore Checkerspot on a few occasions.

Often butterfly photographs show off the wings of the butterfly. And that is for good reasons. The wings often showcase most of the butterflies colors.

I like this head on look of the Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly with its wings spread.

It highlights the head of the butterfly and gives a slim profile of the butterfly while still highlighting its colors against the green background.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/320 sec. f/5.6.
