I am really glad that I opted to buy the D5100 rather than something more expensive. I have made the decision to invest in lenses and filters over a more expensive camera body. I compared some of the shots of the more expensive camera to the ones taken with the D5100 and I really can’t tell much of a difference. Not enough to spend over $2000. At least not right now. Photography also isn’t about having the most expensive camera. It’s about capturing the moment. It also has a lot to do with technique and finding the right settings. That’s something I’ve really made myself practice on lately. And I can tell it’s helped a lot.
I took this one a few days ago. I didn’t specifically set out to find this little guy and was actually looking for something else when I saw him fluttering around among the clover. I got a few shots, but this is one of my favorites.
