A shot of a Scarlet Jezebel butterfly (Delias argenthona) taken near Linville in QLD, Australia.
This is probably one of the most attractive butterflies I’ve seen, but also among the most skittish I’ve encountered.. After probably about half an hour of following this one around a wattle tree I finally managed to snag a usable image.
Shot with a Canon 7D, 100mm f/2.8 L lens and kenko extension tubes. Processed in Photoshop CS5.
