Taking on Fuel

By Malfun
Took a few attempts to get a frame with the proboscis just right. Flash with diffuser used to control the light. The butterfly was obviously enjoying the meal as it was oblivious to my lens so close to it. Shot with a laowa 60mm macro hand held at about 1.5 magnification. No cropping.

An exceptional close-up image of the butterfly head, and especially the proboscis and eye.
