Orange Mapwing 2

Hypanartia lethe

There it is... Melanie is showing us the preferred method of using a butterfly field guide. Rarely have tropical butterflies been so accomodating to us. In this case, the orange mapwing butterfly is preoccupied by drinking the sweat from her skin, posing nicely for a comparison to the photo in our field guide, by Kim Garwood.

Nikon D70 ,Sigma 180mm f/3.5 EX APO Macro IF HSM
1/400s f/13.0 at 185.0mm with Flash full exif
