On My Finger Tips

Blue Morpho Butterfly

Shooting hand held with a fairly heavy macro lens in low light is a reasonable challenge with two hands. However, it is even more of a challenge with just one hand.
Still, this was a memory shot that I didn't want to go past me. I used my knee to help balance the camera. ISO 3200.
