126/1000 - Butterfly (unknown type)

I have always shyed away from taking my camera gear into the Butterfly House at Chester Zoo as the humidity is soo high and I was worried about if it would cause any damage. This time I decided to completly wrap my camera and lens in a water proof sandwich bag up to the protective UV filter on the front. The filter did steam up a little on the front but after about 10 minutes it had warmed up and I managed to get my first butterfly shots at Chester Zoo.


NOTE: Unfortunatly there was no sign as to what this butterfly was - If you know please leave a comment and i'll update the title - thanks!
