In this case: Looking up to the glass ceiling.. I took it a few days ago at a butterfly house.

Nice work Calee. Your photos have a unique blend of sharp detail fading or feathering to softness that is very appealing.

Thanks a million, Nick! Such a nice compliment from someone I admirer makes my day 🙂

I think you are right, we have a similar butterfly here in Australia, a blue-banded eggfly that looks just like this one, except that it is blue on the edges 🙂 Lovely shot, I like the detail!

Thanks so much, Reinhardt! 🙂 I’m still not sure what kind of butterfly it is, but it’s very similar to your blue-banded eggfly indeed.

Wonderful shot of a beautiful butterfly. With your trusty 60mm macro, you surely had to be really close.
July 16, 2013 at 9:24 AM
Thanks so much, Mike! I was indeed very close.. Too close. I accidentally poked a wing with the lens hood and she took off immediately.

Every time I look at your photos I wonder : where does she live this woman in order to be able to keep moments, things, animals so extraordinarily exceptional? Thanks Calee, you’re wonderful.

Wow, thanks so much for the praise Giuseppe!! I live in Amsterdam and there are lots of beautiful butterflies and other animals all around the city. But this picture was taken in a butterfly house in a botanical garden. 🙂

And yet, no matter the level of your photos, what you give me is the “moment”.
July 16, 2013 at 5:18 PM
Then I will say ‘mission accomplished’ 😀 Thanks again, Giuseppe.
