This is my very first official macro shot. It was taken at the “Butterfly house” in Stockholm, Sweden, with my brand new Nikkor 105/2,8G VR macro lens. I feel like a child with a new toy in my hands. But I do realize that I’m going to need a whole lot of practice in order to get some exceptional macros.
The little fellow portrayed in the shot above is a “Giant Owl" butterfly. It has apparently adopted the eyespot as a decoy, simply in order to divert its predators. Mother nature is indeed quite an impressive work of art..
