The Ulysses Blue by Larry Lingard-Davis

Currently unavailable for purchase

This image was taken looking down upon the wings of a Ulysses Blue Butterfly at the Melbourne Zoo a few years ago.
This is another one from my shoebox that I had forgotten about.

taken with a panasonic Lumix FZ30 set on Manual, with a touch of hdr ( x2 ) and post op done on Picasa3.


I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    What a gorgeous color!

  • I must agree.
    It reminded me of the film “Papillon” with Steve McQueen when they were catching the butterflies…
    And I see you have made self portraiture into an art form.

    Gorgeous capture Larry. Love those colors. You did yourself proud. :o)

  • I am hoping to get some really good ones when I’m in Santoza at Singapore later on in October.
    They have one of the best butterfly / bird aviaries that I have ever seen.
