Butterfly Eyes

The butterflies are back at the botanical garden and this time I took the macro with me and looked right into this guy’s eyes.

Wow. This is extraordinary. Your post today reminds me of a comment that Julie made last evening about her macro lens helping her overcome her fear of insects. Julie made the comment during a delightful dinner with Rob and Mandy of Barcelona Daily Photo.

Great macro. I noticed the first butterfly of the season yesterday, but it was too quick for me so I didn't get any good photos.

Butterflies????? Up here it's still snow flies! hahahaha But I CAN dream!

Michelle said...

Very cool!

Randy said...

That is amazing!

My, what big eyes you have my dear.
Now for some reason, I am craving an orange.

Oh dear...I wouldn't want to be a little bug and awake to that sight! I'd be a goner for sure!

What a super photo!

Re your comment on Ocala: The store is called The Gray Fox and it sells all kinds of jewelry and stuff...buying gold is a sideline.

It appeared to me the woman was looking for some jewelry. Her male friend was trying to be helpful but seemed a little bored...

Fab use of your macro lens! Looks like he/she is enjoying that orange.

Are those blue eyes. What an excellent photo.

Jack said...

Nice one, Sharon. I don't have a special macro lens, so I guess I need to leave this to you and others . . .

Jilly said...

Wow, definitely a wow photo, Sharon. Love the shot. What a great angle you got him.

T. Becque said...

Wow, you can see his nectar sucking thingy!

JM said...

WOW! Terrific capture, Sharon! I didn't realize they like orange juice... :-)

Magpie said...

Wow! This is amazing. Could you tell me what macro you're using? I think I'm in the market for one. If I can get shots like this, then I'm definitely in the market.
