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

  6. 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 πŸ™‚ Lovely shot, I like the detail!

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

  12. Wonderful shot of a beautiful butterfly. With your trusty 60mm macro, you surely had to be really close.

    • 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.

  13. 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. πŸ™‚

  14. 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’ πŸ˜€ Thanks again, Giuseppe.
