Skipper Butterflies (Two Photographs) and a word on Detail and Sharpness

All nature photographers want sharp photographs. With subjects like birds in flight, it is not always possible to get tack sharp photographs. Starting with a sharp photo taken in raw, there is always more detail available from sharpening the transition between tones and pixels and not just the standard sharpening of the pixels themselves. Third party plugins often have tonal contrast and detail extractors. The detail extractor in Nik Color Efx (now free) is a good example but its tonal contrast was better in former versions. Some plugins talk about structure and micro-detail. These are variations of detail extraction and can help if used with caution to improve the sharpness of a photo and give you more detail. With insects the details are often very small and these post-processing tools are a great way to ensure the sharp photograph you took in camera is faithfully reproduced.
