This stereographic panoramic image shows a sculpture of a butterfly in Prehen Woods, a small area (< 10 hectares) of ancient woodland close to Derry City, N. Ireland. This butterfly stands in a clearing in the woods.

Once again the bulldozers and chain saws have entered Prehen Woods this week (February 2012) to destroy another corner of the woods to make way for more houses. A local campaign: No to housing development in Prehen Woods has a Facebook page and an online petition

It is an ancient woodland dating back to 1600. The entire wood has “Tree Preservation Order” status. It is managed by The Woodland Trust

Despite this it is constantly being threatened with encroachment for housing. It takes persistent campaigning by local people to retain what is left of the woods.

Photographic and Technical Details
The source images for this panorama were shot in Raw mode on a Canon 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual Focus fisheye lens mounted via an EOS adapter.

They were taken as a set of 27 separate images in groups of bracketed exposure at 60° intervals. They were stitched and blended together using Hugin an open source panorama tool. Hugin in turn invoked MultiBlend to smooth the seams and Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect.
