The Vivid Beauty of Butterflies

Post by MWP admin » Fri Apr 14, 2006 1:21 pm

Here are some of my latest and proud shots of butterflies from Malta. Note that these are really difficult to photograph from a compact digital camera. A dSLR with macrozoom is the right equipment for such fast-flapping insects - if you have some LM1000 to spare!


If you know the species and English names of the butterflies down here, please tell us.
tnx

I may post later on
