Hi, Everyone.
First let me thank all of you that commented on my Butterfly yesterday, they are very much appreciated.
Today's Butterfly was taken on the same day as yesterday's.
This is a Blue Morpho which had just emerged from a chrysalis and was drying out.
It was taken behind glass so not as sharp as it could be.
All comments as usual are very welcome.
Vee.

Truly incredible capture - what a moment to have on record! The colours are gorgeous and although sharpness has suffered a tad due to being taken from behind glass, this is still, for me, a stunning shot.

Lucky catch there Smile I've found that they live long in butterfly farms but can get rather tatty. I only seen to spot all the damage when I get home and look at my shots.
