Butterfly



This is a picture of the head of a butterfly. I shot this for my photographic illustration class. I shot it using a mamya 6x45 with a Leaf back (love the schools equipment!) I shot at a 60 of a second at F 7.1 . I shot on a white piece of plexi-glass and a soft box and a broncolor with a med sized grid. Oh, and for all you animal lovers I did not kill the butterfly, I found him.

Really nice macro shot, Laura. The angle is kinda weird, I didn't know what it was until I read the caption but it's different and the shape of the tongue is cool.

Laura, this shot is really interesting. I've looked at it several times now and still can barely understand it! (maybe that's just a problem of my own!). Nice lighting and a good job of making something artistic out of something scientific (?).
