I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Stella of Giggles & Tales, for a 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge. Stella’s blog is always full of interesting posts, which are a blend of poetry, photography and perspectives on the world around her. Go check her blog out!!
On this third day of Spring, I want to bring you something to look forward to…
This beautiful creature posed for me during a trip to Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens in Deerfield, Massachusetts. A small group of us were lucky enough to get this delightful conservatory to ourselves before the general public was admitted.
As the building was still warming up, butterflies were still slow in gearing up for their day, which resulted in gorgeous poses, such as this one. If you are ever in the area, I’d recommend a visit wholeheartedly, as it is such a peaceful location.
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were 1/125 second with f/5.6 at 640 ISO.
Post a #naturephoto every day and nominate another blogger for this challenge.
