Macro Monday: Naughty Butterflies!

Hmm... the sights you see just walking innocently around the garden! Did I do the polite thing.... NO! I peeped!! Well, what would you do?

These butterflies are even more striking in person. The white spots are actually metallic silver (like foil) and I don't have the foggiest idea how to get the silver to show in a photo. Any ideas?

In real time the butterflies seemed static but not so... as the photos reveal.

The wingtips are a bit blurry but I love the background-- reminds me of a Monet painting.

The wings look better here and still have some background flowers but my house is in it too! Drat!! Yes, I could have cropped it out but couldn't bear to chop off the antennae.

  2. Wow, lovely butterflies , great shots ;)
    Thank you for visiting me.

  3. Great photos. Nice of the butterflies to not get offended at you.

  4. The house is fine. That's what controlling the depth of field does, blurs it out when it's unimportant. I think it's great the way it is. The sunwashed look is neat, too.

  5. Once I took a pair of mating praying mantis to the school I was working as a Reading Teacher. I asked the science teacher if it was ok, and he said yes.

    Whee!!I could have been in big tourble.
