This was shot at the Botanical Garden in Montreal. It is still too d*** cold to shoot outside. Fortunately, they had an exhibition of live butterflies as an activity for the kids spring break.

You'll see some of the best shots during the month for sure. This one was processed using Color Efex Pro - Pastel filter to give a "fairy" feeling to the little guy.

This is going to be FUN!! :)

Every year I do the butterfly thing in MI and I know how hard it is to get these things to actually sit for a second and then actually get the shot. I can appreciate what you've done here. That pastel filter gives it a nice, dreamy feel.

Beautiful image! The butterfly is so perfect it almost looks like a paper cutout, and the pastels work great here.

This is beautiful enough to be considered fabric design. It has a nice illustrative feel. Good choice of colors.

I had to go look up who "carofo" was... :-) Nice to see you in this side challenge! Lovely little guy - and very nice to have an exhibit where you can photograph him without freezing your butt off!

This is very pretty with those beautiful pastel colours for a delicate butterfly. I love the dof.
