I used to almost exclusively take photos of butterflies, spiders and flowers. I’ve developed a lot of other interests since those days but it was nature photography that helped me grow in confidence as a photographer. After all, it takes some patience to photograph butterflies.
This photo was taken back in 2005 at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens—one of my favorite places for nature photography. I used a Sony DSC-V1. This was the early days of my photography adventures before Big Bertha. Remember that you don’t need an expensive camera to achieve good results.
