I love this picture. I must have it.
I took this in the butterfly room in the Natural History Museum. The museum is free but the butterfly room usually costs to get in, which I think is a rip off. BUT on Tuesday's it's free!! Maybe we make this one of our photo outings? :)
I love your macro shots. Inspiring! I'm torn--macro or telephoto lens to purchase next? Wish I could get both!
Lynn - This was actually taken with an 28-80mm lens, on 80mm. I have trouble using a macro lens with bugs because they move so fast and it's hard to get that close - especially to butterflies. I know what you mean, though! I really wanted one of those $700 macro lenses, but I ended up settling for a $50 macro converter lens by Raynox and I love it!!
How stunning is that!!! Gorgeous work :)
Heidi, that is an AWESOME shot! The colors are so rich they are literally glowing. Just beautiful.
Thank you! God made the colors... I just snapped the picture. I do love butterflies... :)
