Butterflies

BUTTERFLIES
I admire their delicate markings and beautiful colours, so I thought it makes a great macro shot. Looks easy to shoot, but not really… ;-) We must look closely and try to see beyond the big picture of them.

One of the most difficult shot. Got this one just a few steps outside my house. Waited about 10 minutes to get this shot. Shoot nothing less than 10 shots just to get this one in focus.

Got this shot in Kuala Lumpur butterfly farm. This butterfly has unique colour - almost the same with the floor colour.

Easy shot. It doesn't move at all ;-)

Meal time! I found this butterfly eating nectar of a hibiscus.

A very close shot of this species while eating rotten banana.

Malaysia’s very own king of butterflies - “Rajah Brooke's Birdwing”

Oopppsss… I was focusing on other butterflies on top, but this black and blue wing's butterfly settled on my shoe :-D
