Multi-coloured butterfly
27.5.12 Chris Spracklen

Multi-coloured butterfly

In a field somewhere in Spain!

I thought it was high time I posted a butterfly shot, as we saw and photographed many a species during our time in Spain. I was never totally happy with the results, but this is one of my favourites.

Not sure what species this is, but if you happen to know I'd be pleased to hear from you.

(N.B. This image is NOT geotagged! :o) )

Nikon D7000 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/800s f/10.0 at 400.0mm iso400 full exif

Love the wide format presentation of this lovely image.
The Butterfly is beautiful and perfectly perched for your sharp lens.
The bokeh is flattering and the Butterfly shows his grace as she prepares to feed.
If I had to name her I would call her Lovely.
