The Painted Lady

The Painted Lady

A Painted Lady Butterfly lands for a few seconds, its vibrant wing colours gloriously emphasised against the drab grey of the pebble-strewn background the flying insect has chosen as a resting place.

*Shot on a Canon 350d 8.2mp dSLR using a Sigma 75-300mm f/4-5.6 DG macro lens set at ISO-100, aperture at f/9, pattern metering mode and an exposure time of 1/640 seconds*
