Heliconia Rest-Stop

Uploaded: May 09, 2005


1/125sec,ISO400, FL=147mm, f5.0
Watched this butterfly flying around for a while and then it landed on this Heliconia Plant to rest. Just enough time to capture this shot. Original image cropped, adjusted curves a slight bit. Taken at the Niagara Falls Butterfly Conservatory.

Naveed, Quite an impressive photograph of the lobster claw halconia and the butterfly. For a moment there, I thought you might have been in my neck of the woods. Well done. Peace, karen e michaels #246850

What a beautiful butterfly you've captured, Naveed! It looks almost like a pretty piece of jewellery decorating the haliconia! Great shot! #1334255
