Artist Notes
This is an eastern Tiger Swallowtail! I was driving around a local public fishing lake. This is something I do every day. You never know what you might see! This guy was sitting on this button bush flower drinking the sweet nectar. I wanted you to see him up close and personal! I am using an Olympus E3 camera with a 70-300mm lens ISO 400 500/sec f8

Cropped and adjusted contrast

Hello! My name is Willie Powell.
I have been interested in photography all my life. My dad is the one that taught me just enough to get me going. He had a darkroom & he taught me to know my way around in there. I took my first wedding when I was sixteen. I was really nervous. Untill you shoot one you will never know the pressure of getting it right. I am the photographer of Powell Photography. I take portraits, senior, engagement, wedding, and family pictures, or anything else you might want. I really like nature & portraits the best.
I worked at a metal stamping factory as a tool & die designer for 32 years, using different cad systems, the latest was pro-e wildfire. The managmet mistreated me & I decided I did not have to take it, so I retired, went out and bought an olympus E3 camera and some lenses, so now I can do what I've always wanted to ...
