This butterfly was taken at St.Albans butterfly farm.I have tried to sharpen it but the humidity in there makes it very difficult it is really steamy and hot but well worth a visit.Thank you all so much for your comments on my last picture.

I saw some Tree Nymphs in Taiwan. It's quite amazing to see them in the wild.
This is a very lovely capture.

A lovely shot, nice colours and detail. I got a good tip from a worker in the butterfly farm in Edinburgh. He told me that a chap came with his camera, and told him that he had kept his camera all night in a warm linen cupboard, then wrapped it in a thick towel. Said he had no problem with the steam and was able to use his camera right away. OK I suppose if you live near the place. I live 2 hours away from Edinburgh! Otherwise the worker says you should wait 10 - 15 minutes before trying to use it. Gives it time to acclimatise. Dammit, I am such a fountain of stupid information. Tongue Moira
