Congratulations to Lorenzo Cassina for winning the Getting Ready For Spring Assignment!
"In September 2012, at Constitution Park in Deerfield Beach, Florida, this beautiful swallowtail butterfly landed on a flower just before my eyes, giving me limited time for the shot," said Cassina. "This confirms what photography is all about—capturing the moment by being in the right place at the right time. I only made regular enhancements, such as crop, contrast, saturation, gamma, sharpness and maybe a slight touch with curves."
Equipment: Nikon D80, Sigma 70-300mm ƒ/4-5.6 APO DG, monopod
