How Glasswings are made.............. by 

PLEASE VIEW LARGE – My favourite, the Glasswing Butterfly – Greta oto, emerging from it’s chrysalis I photographed this ‘new life with it’s wings still opaque’ near Klapmuts, Western Cape, South Africa. 31/10/2012

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    This is perfect timing. Well seen. Did you use a macro lens. DOF is spot-on. Liz

  • Thanks very much Liz, , I’d not seen this stage of it’s life yet, was very pleased at the opportunity, yes I used a 105mm f2.8 lens.

    Absolutely wonderful. It’s amazing, exiting and fascinating to watch eclosion (hatching) in “captivity” but to witness it wild is beyond imagination.
    Lovely image, Macky, a delight to behold

  • Thank you Jesika!!
