About the Image(s)

This image was in a butterfly garden in Houston. The Owl Butterfly eats juicy fruits and sugarcane. This little baby was crawling on a plant, but he readily wandered on my waiting finger for a portrait. The shot was made with my trusty Nikon Coolpix L840, ISO 100, f/4.8, 1/60 second. This is just a "snapshot" camera, but it takes good photos. I would love comments.

I'm impressed that you could hold this thing in one hand and shoot this close with such precise focus! You managed to capture fine details of this little creature. Great job!   Posted: 07/05/2024 17:03:06

Thanks. I really LOVE being in a butterfly house, even with the humidity. You can't find these little guys in your garden very often !   Posted: 07/08/2024 09:36:18
