Beautiful tones Margot! I like the shadows here.
Great effect of the lighting….breath taking shot!
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.
What an unusual butterfly this is, I love the light effects on this..
