Chlosyne Janais, a South American species

Chlosyne Janais, a South American species

While at the Museum of Natural History, we couldn’t resist checking out the butterfly exhibition. (http://www.butterflies.si.edu/). It was amazing! Butterflies were all over the place. In fact at times we were having to dodge them as they flew by us. Sometimes we’d even see one or two land on one of the visitors. Needless to say, the opportunity for some interesting photos was pretty good. Lens Baby provided me a set of macro diopters (close-up lenses) I’ll be writing about soon. I used the more powerful 10x with the telephoto add on lens to make this image of a South American butterfly getting ready to feed. Exposure details: ISO 200, 1/125th of a second, f4 aperture ring in the Composer, available light. The image has been cropped heavily (what you see in the final photo represents about 25% of the actual file. This still leaves me with a 6.2 mb file for 5 x 7.5 at 240 ppi, which is certainly capable of good quality prints if I need them.
