    Beautiful butterfly Margot! I newer photograph one jet, the the shadows
    Oh yes very clever…

  • Thanks, Hans – there are two reasons I was able to get this shot: access and opportunity.

    (1) I was in the magical Butterfly House at Melbourne Zoo so was able to get excellent access to a number of beautiful butterflies, which seem to be quite habituated to the presence of people;

    (2) this butterfly was sitting on a rail in soft, diffused light offering a great opportunity to get this interesting light/shadow play and colour contrast.
