Beautifully Bedraggled

by davidstorm

Shaun Wilson has asked me to do a talk at his camera class on Macro Photography and I get the feeling he will arrange some surprises to put me under pressure! To get myself ready I've been trawling through a few macro shots and came across this one. I've been told off for shooting pics of butterflies 'from behind', but what the heck I like this one so here goes!

Great picture and caption.
Love the colours.

I tried a few times to photograph Butterflies, but they never hold still for me.

Lovely photo. Whoever told you off for taking a photo of a butterfly from the rear is not only a very sad person but a complete plonker too! Some advice is best ignored!!
