Shot in a butterfly conservatory. For those who haven't gone, you should, it is a photographers dream. This shot was taken with a newly purchased Nikon 6 T close up lens. Focal length was at 6mm. I couldn't use a tripod in the conservatory. There were many shots that could have been used for this challenge. As a matter of fact I settled for this shot at 11:45 pm. Hope you liked it as much as I do.

Thanks for the compliment. Coming from you, it means a lot. It's obvious that you are very talented. You do excellent work, and it shows by your numerous awards. One day I will get one, maybe even two or three. ;)

Wow very cool capture!
11/22/2005 03:27:46 PM
very nice.

Pretty. I find the light background distracting me away from th butterfly. Good closeup otherwise.

7 - Good. Criticism; title too lengthy, plus you haven't captured the coloring mentioned so, selling your shot short in a sense. Difficult, but would like to see it sharper and perhaps a touch more contrast. A slightly different crop/composition may also have made this better in my opinion. Good meeting of the Challenge and camouflage capture.

Wonderful camo! Gets a 10 from me for just being able to spot it when you did ;)
11/20/2005 05:29:22 PM
Wow! That's wild. Great photo.

Great find! Fits the challenge perfectly. Nicely done.

Nice camouflage, took me a second to figure out what was the butterfly, good luck

i wish there were more leaves like his wings in the backround, it better show his blending ability. also it looks a touch soft.
11/17/2005 08:04:06 PM
well done, only small (very small) distraction for me is the way the bright light shines through, hard to do much about I know, loved it overall
11/17/2005 03:01:46 PM
it does look like a leaf... great shot
11/17/2005 02:29:35 PM
What a pretty picture - it suits the challenge perfectly! I think the composition would be stronger if you had rotated and then cropped so the the back edge of the wings made a diagonal across the picture with the tips of the wings on either third.

Great shot. How do you find these things? Amazing.
11/17/2005 12:30:08 AM
Love this shot-8.

Very interesting butterfly, you must of really been looking to find it. The backlighting on this is a little harsh and distracting.

NIce colours and focus!

Great capture! Just right for the theme...it took me a while to spot the legs.
