To Green or Not to Green... that is the Question....

By bombebit
Hi all,

thank you to all for the comments and votes on my latest uploads... as ever very grateful...

Today is ... well green eh... it is a green day today I thought (maybe it is because I for some deranged reason did a double shift over night totalling 16 hrs.. lol)... anyway, it is a little Emerald Swallowtail. I have one in my pf which is open so you can see the beautiful green on her, but you can if you look still see the markings on her body and the bit of wing showing on the top...

Details as usual.. another climber I am afraid, all the good ones are at the top and you have to be willing to risk life and limb to photograph them.. handheld, f4, iso 400, -0.67 exposure.. used the 60mm again, it is light and easier to use when climbing up...

Hope you like her - c&c very welcome and wish you all a lovely evening..

B Smile

PS... you might want to go LARGE ... it will work trust me.. lol

Love the contrast between the black and the green. the water droplets add that little extra something, although they have run a little
