Colour blind from Tokyo, Japan

Fantastic, it looks massive. You did pretty well to get this at 38mm, you must have been really close to the subject.

29 Jan 2007 11:29pm

@Colour blind: oh yes I was close indeed, the little fela was right on the street almost the same height as my knee! My camera is automatic, I simply put it on macro mode. Thanks

Wow, what a rare and wonderful capture! Nice vibrant colors and shape! He/she somehow looks like a fabric butterfly, don't you think? :)

30 Jan 2007 4:34am

@Lyndsey Le: oh, what is a fabric one? please let me know.

@Anne: a smiling face is the best reward for a photographer, thank you

Lyndsey Le from Houston, TX, United States

Dimitrios, I meant to say he looks like he's made out of fabric material. I don't think there's such thing as a "fabric" butterfly :) Sorry about the confusion. BTW, how big is the butterfly? He looks huge!

30 Jan 2007 7:05pm

@Lyndsey Le: hi LL, thanks for expalining the term, the beauty was only abou 8-9 cm in length, I was very fortunate that it did not moove, I put the camera on macro mode and cliked. Best regards D

Craig Persel from Montreal, Canada
