Hypsea Doubleday Butterfly

Hypsea Doubleday Butterfly

This butterfly has very attractive patterning especially on the underwings. It was not easy to photograph as it was very skittish and would fly away whenever I got too close. I was quite pleased with this picture which was one of my first successes without using flash.

Canon A1, 50 mm macro lens, tripod + cable release.
