Natures Way

By GarethRobinson  
A shot of a Butterfly just as it dried of after hatching from its chrysalis.
I used 2 sbr200 flashes, one to light the front and another of to side to bring out the veins etc in the wings.
Comments more than welcome and thanks for taking a look.

I think its a Red Admiral but would like that confirmed.

Richard, not a butterfly farm, picture was taken at my home, the kids brought a few different caterpillars home, so I fed them and watched them grow into beautiful specimens.

Thanks for the comments.
