I, Butterfly

Butterflies are such delicate and beautiful creatures; so many sizes and so many astounding colors.  They sometimes remind me of flower petals fluttering in the wind.  Have you ever seen one close up? I mean really close up?  Those delicate wings are scales, they seem to be wearing little fur coats, those compound eyes, their long curled proboscis, and those tiny thin legs that have little barbs on them to help them cling to things.

God’s beautiful little works of art. (Tomorrow I will post this lovely in color with a few words about macro photography)

    They are such a beautiful creation

  3. Your B&W rendering has a metallic look to it – kind of counter to the delicately light nature of the butterfly. Yes, macro is difficult with living things.

    Nice capture. No, I’ve never been this close to one.

  5. Beautiful! I like the B&W.

  6. The monochrome really brings out the patterns. I’m looking forward to seeing the colors. Cheers

  8. Beautifully captured! I have never seen one so close….did you use long macro lens? 105 mm?

    Yes… beautiful creatures. They are little art works fluttering through the wind.
