My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
Butterfly Kisses, Johanna

    G’day LEPI!

    What exquisite detail you have caught in this very fine butterfly study. The lighting and exposure are spot on and deliver lovely natural colours. Great work man.
