Springs Preserve (Butterflies & Birds)

In April I attended two Digital Photography classes at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve. My main objective for taking these classes was to learn more about obtaining and mastering 'Depth-of-Field" in my closeups. Even though I'm not sure I have it all down yet, I do feel that I am getting closer to understanding what camera settings I need in order to achieve it. Here are what I consider some of the better closeup pictures of butterflies and birds I captured during these two and some previous visits. The Slide Show at the bottom of the page contain all of the butterfly and bird pictures taken during these two visits, as well as some previous visits.
