I was going through my archives the other night when I came across this very close macro image of a White Morpho Butterfly. These creatures have fascinated me since my first visit to Butterfly World in Coconut Creek, Florida. Their wings look like silk handkerchiefs with gold embroidery and they love rotten banana nectar.
This is not a cropped image. I got in as close as I could and used my Canon 430 EXII flash to illumine the wings. It came out quite well, and I was surprised I had not done anything with this shot since last March.
