First off, I have entered 4 photos in the 2011 American Photo Images of the Year Contest and would loooooove your help in voting for them.  Here is a link to all the entries; mine should be near the top.  There are some amazing photographers in this contest, so I realize I don’t have much of a chance, but please vote and help me out!!  You have to register with Popular Photo, but that shouldn’t matter, its a great magazine!  Thank you so much for your help!!

Today i have some more macro photos for ya.  I stumbled upon 2 butterflies mating on Sunday while waiting for our brunch table to be ready at the awesome little restaurant in Lago d’Averno.  The last is an artsy approach, but I like the result.  Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting!!  Don’t forget to vote for my photos here!!

    Very cool shots, Adam. The detail in the second shot is amazing.

  2. Edith Levy says:

    Beautiful Adam. I like all 3 shots and I agree with Jan the detail in the second is incredible.

  3. Adam Allegro says:

    Edith, thanks for the nice comment. I appreciate the visit!

  4. Jimi Jones says:

    Great shots!
    I agree with Jan and Edith, the detail is outstanding. Like the DOF as well, nice job.

    Sunday must have been butterfly mating day, I too captured a few images of a pair. What a coincidence. Mine remain on the camera, really haven’t looked them over yet. I recall one of the butterflies landing on my bear foot. :-)

    Will sign up and support your contest effort, Adam. Sounds like fun, plus I get to see more awesome photos.
