Artist's Description

Chicago is very fortunate in having the Peggy Notebart Nature Museum, Butterfly Haven, which is open year around and fosters some very exotic buterfly species. The year this was shot I must have shoot one thousand images. I tried several techniques to produce unique images, but still there is nothing more beautiful than a close-up of butterfly. The colors and patterns in these insects atre incredible, more so when you realize they only live for a fews days to maybe a couple of months.
All the images were shot with a Nikon 105 micro lens, sometimes with strobe fill from a SB29.
The image of the gaint blue morph was shot with a 300mm lens from the floor of the butterfly haven. I found it very hard to get a picture of this butterfly with wings spread.
The original images were shot on Provia 100 transparency film or Kodachrome 200.
