About the Image(s)

I made this photo a month ago in the backyard garden. This adult butterfly landed on a flower, uncoiled its proboscis (a straw-like tube that is hidden away when not eating), and dipped it into the center of the bloom. The proboscis was long enough to reach the very bottom of tube-shaped flower. I was intrigued by the color of butterfly and flower. The image was taken with a Nikon D750 fitted with the micro Nikkor105 mm f2.8 lens, on tripod. The camera settings were 105mm, f/9, 1/320sec, at ISO-1600.
In post processing, LR and Photoshop CS4 were used to edit the image.
