ORANGE WITH APOLOGIES

Sorry to post another orange butterfly shot, but at least this one is mostly in focus.* From today's trip to Butterfly Magic at the Cleveland Zoo.

 

Shot with the 70-300 lens, no rings, so not a true macro. Alas.

 

*Hmm ... does not look as sharp in Flickr as it does on my own screen. I will check into that and report back if I make any interesting discoveries.

"This passionflower butterfly displays the bright warning colors and patterns used by other species to avoid predators." (" ... and attract photographers," I might add.)
