The butterfly.

This picture  is of a butterfly that is common in the garden, but is quite difficult to capture as it never seems to stay put for long. I like this butterfly because in contrast to the monarch butterfly, the eyes are quite easy to see as they seem to bulge out of the head. The picture was taken at the end of July, and it was hand held.

Canon XTI, Sigma lens 150mm macro, iso800, f/5.6, 1/640sec.




  1. What a great photo. Great macro shot. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot Katie!
