    shallow DOF shots in butterfly photography is unusual
    these are very good

    the first one is my favorite

    Gene,

    Great shots! I especially like #5.
    I may take a trip to a butterfly house in MA this fall and see if I can get a few good shots.
     
  6. IT's a blue Morph. They are a really cool shiny blue when their wings are flat!
    I have some shots from this same event, but nothing like this! Great Job!

    As Kim mentioned it's a Blue Morph. Here's a shot of tattered and somewhat faded Blue Morph taken at the same exibition a couple of years earlier.

    What Does the Future Hold
