Day 221 of 365

I was surprised at how close this butterfly on a wisteria petal let me get to capture its photo. I got 2 shots, but this one had the dreamier look with an aperture of f/1.6. I just love the Lensbaby Velvet 56 and taking dreamy, colorful photos! You can shoot as close as 5″, but by adding some extension tubes, you can get in even closer…I haven’t taken the time to see how close I can get with both the 10mm and 16mm Meike extension tubes on, but I’m guessing its within the 1 – 2 inch range.
