Day 105

Hi Everybody!

Today I spent the morning with a friend in the botanical garden of the university, just walking and relaxing while seeing all the different types of trees and animals in there.

We saw so many butterflies like this one, flying from one leaf to another one, and then his one stayed still for a while, I shot some photos and as it was still there, I tried to get closer using the close up lens; it was amazing, the butterfly didn’t move at all and through the camera I could see the detail of its tongue and eyes; I got pictures of it and they are good and sharp, but I prefered posting this one because here you can see the whole butterfly, and the texture of its wings, which amazed me a lot because it looks like a leaf.

To read some interesting facts about butterflies, go on day 72.

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 with a close-up lens; 24 mm, ISO 400; f/4,5 ; 1/80 s.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

Have a great week!


Hola a todos!

Hoy estuve toda la mañana con una amiga en el jardín botánico de la universidad, simplemente caminando, relajandonos y viendo los diferentes tipos de árboles y animales que alla se pueden encontrar.

Vimos muchas de éstas mariposas, todas volando de una lanta a otra, pero hubo un momento en el que ésta se posó sobre una hoja, se quedó quieta y aproveché para tomarle unas fotos; después de un tiempo en el que seguía quita, me acerqué más y saque el close-up o lente de acercamiento; era muy chévere poder ver los detalles de su lengua y ojos, son increibles!
Saqué unas buenas fotos de detalles, pero decidí poner esta, porque se ve la mariposa completa y se aprecia bien la textura de sus alas, que es como la de una hoja.

Para ver algunos datos interesantes sobre als mariposas, hagan click en día 72.

Que tengan una buena semana!

  1. Hi Pablo. Great focussing. Lovely bokeh from your lens. Really very nice shot. Would have loved it a little more if the end of the antenna had been in focus too. I’ve yet to do any real macro work, so I’m sure this will be miles better than anything I will be able to do.
    Keep up the great work.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Your work is great! Enjoy your 365 project. I will check in on your progress!

  3. OMG!! Pablo.. What a stunning photo..
    The details you’ve captured, the bokeh is stunning..
    I visited a butterfly farm in Aruba and took a bazillion photos.. They are quite dormant in the mornings and great to photograph a that time.. You just made me smile.. I have to share this on Twitter 🙂
