Golden Helicon Butterfly

By MarkBullen
Another picture taken on a visit to the New Forest Wildlife Park, I wanted somewhere to try and use flash properly, well at least experiment with it. This seemed to be a good chance to try to freeze motion as the butterflies do not really stay still on a hot day

Really like the contrast and in particular the perfect framing, especially keeping the 'antler' in the shot. No I don't know what their feelers are called Sad

A very nice capture sharp and a good POV very nice.
