Blue Morpho Butterfly
« on: March 16, 2022, 18:14:40 »
This butterfly was captured yesterday at the local butterfly  exhibit in Grand Rapids, MI.  These are quite large butterflies, who love to fly around and tease a photographer, but generally sit with their wings closed.  So always a treat when one actually keeps the wings open for a bit.

Z9. 70-180 macro, R1C1 flash, hand held.

Cheers

Randy

Randy,

Quite the butterfly...just curious: what's the shooting distance, approximately?

Thanks, Robert
