My first camera was an Argus C3 given to me by my Uncle. Became interested and over the intervening years I have done photography and stopped, only to start again. Have begun again in the last 4 years with Canon Digital Point and Shoots. I have no training in the arts or photography. I have read some of Ansel Adam’s series, never finished.. I have learned a lot from seeing the fantastic images here.

    I love the richness of the green.

  • Thanks Hank. Weird story. Was trying to photograph some exuberant zebra butterflies. One land for a moment and I got it but pretty wide angle. I went to crop the butterfly out and saw the shadows ot those things hanging down behind it in shadow. Rushed back our to search for what appeared to be large pincher martian bat flies, jaws agap! But, nooooo! So got to macro this one. The soft focus of the green makes “them” stand out!

    I’m with Hank…the green is gorgeous in this. I’m so amazing that a caterpillar can create such a fascinating structure…and ALL of it’s species make exactly identical housing! You’ve nailed the ID…definately a Zebra

  • Really, wow thanks Carla!!! They’ve been hanging about this bush in flocks of 5 or 6. Like I said it freaked me out when I saw the shadows of them. Your definitely a princess! Thanks for your comment, and it is wonderful expression of nature’s diversity.

    Nice capture Glenn. I’d say it’s a chrysalis all right, though I’m no expert.

  • Hello Carl, thank first off! Seems Carla nailed it as a Zebra Butterfly chrysalis. She’s great! Just got the D90. Big learning curve!
