How the winning photo of the "Insects" contest was made
By rogi in Photo Contests on Nov 25, 2020
First of all I would like to thank the PentaxForums community for choosing my picture, other pictures were great too. Second I would like to clarify that the picture is one shot and not a composite. I took this picture with a Pentax K-1 + D FA 150-450mm combo towards the end of the summer, about 4 months ago. I was visiting some relatives for the weekend and we went to a local park since they thought I would be able to take some nice pictures.
I spent some time chasing hummingbirds but I gave up since their movements were quite unpredictable and I would only see them every 20 minutes or so. After that, I started taking pictures of butterflies since they were more abundant and easier to follow.
