I never studied much about butterflies at all, but I sure am enchanted by them. Not only by their beauty, but also by their metamorphosis process, the histolysis specially, where a new organism is created after the dissolution of another… the liquid mass that then becomes a butterfly. If there’s a God and we get to meet him eventually, “How does the histogenesis actually work?” is one of the things I’ll surely ask him… and then I’ll be “OOOOooohhhh! That’s quite impressive, Sir!” and I’d be on my way…
Heh, this black-veined hairstreak’s such a beauty! I had the chance to take many photos of it and I can’t help it but share a load of them with you! 😉
Hasta Later, Minasan! 😉
thank you! 🙂
Very interesting to see your style come through with these ‘petite’ models.
well, I’ve shot butterflies before, there are quite a few in a set on flickr 😛
wonderfu AnnAl! =)
looks like a place enchanted!!
Lindas!! Também adoro essas bichinhas 🙂 não muito tempo atrás, achei uma borboleta BIZARRA no meu jardim e fiz um post sobre isso…se quiser ver, sinta-se à vontade: http://janusaureus.wordpress.com/2012/01/05/uma-folheta-ou-borbolha/
They are very pretty creatures, with no role in life but to enchant us! Nicely captured here, AnnA.
lol… actually they help pollinate the flowers…
I finally got back – magnificent collection of dreamlike butterfly shots. You conjur up an amazing atmosphere and use bokeh like nobody else I know of or have come across.
Many thanks, Sam!!! 😉
thanks, Keith 🙂
