I wouldn't have thought of doing a butterfly picture in black and white, but this one is very convincing.

If it's not a monarch it should be. Royaly good shot.
JW22-Aug-2008 18:14
What a stunning shot - it really makes sense of B&W despite the colour we know we are missing. Perhaps that 'tease' is what holds the brain's attention. Outstanding work from the wizard!

Nice find!
Do you cool them in the fridge for a while before photographing them?
That way they'll hold still...or so I'm told.
mathilda williams22-Aug-2008 01:10
