Real or not?

Can you tell if this is real or not?

                                                        Canadian Tiger Swallowtail                    
     
            Of course it's real. I spend the whole sunny afternoon at the field trying to catch a good shot with these elusive butterfly. I took this photo against the sun light and I was worried it may affect my camera lens but did not thankfully! Now I like to go where butterflies like to hang out no matter where it is, lol!! I am prepared! ^_^

What a great shot! The only place I can ever find these is in a butterfly farm - yours is great!

Karen said...

An excellent capture Kim!

We have had such miserable hot Wagner this summer that I've rarely ventured out into my garden. Sometimes I do get lucky and find a butterfly holding still long enough for a photo. I admire your persistence in following these guys around long enough to get such lovely images!

Victoria said...

Oh how I hate auto correct. Of course I meant miserable hot weather. Not hot "Wagner" which is what?

Beautiful photo! Camera lenses cope with things our eyes won't.

Teresa said...

They are so beautiful! I've been trying, but I just can't seem to capture the butterflies this summer.

Marites said...

great shots and the risk is definitely worth it. It's just so hard to take photos of butterflies. You got to have patience and determination and seems you have both:) my mym is up too.

That's a lovely contra light shot of the butterfly, Kim. Your perseverance paid off!

Francisca said...

PS. I am SURE you would know the Flame Tree Kim! It's such a hard-to-miss tree in the Philippines. You just may not recognize it close up. ;-)

Hello, Kim,
I love that photo, even the thistle seem to come around the zebra swallowtail in a circular pattern. It is lovely and mimics the technique of some of the Renaissance painters to encircle the focal point.
Thanks for your kind comment!
