Butterfly



Butterfly 03

This butterfly was shot 06 March 2008 in Baluarte - a place where the former Governor of Ilocos Sur (Chavit Singson) gathered all the animals in his collection to showcase to the public. Somewhere there is the Butterfly Farm, and the moment we went there, this type of butterfly was the most abundant in the area.

The butterflies are a bit aloof, I wasn't even able to touch one and they fly when people comes near, but I was lucky enough to get this close to this cute critter! It doesn't have that much colors and details, but still beautiful nonetheless.

This photo is taken using my Sony Ericsson K8ooi cell phone, set to auto macro, no flash. Happy weekends, everyone!

I really love this butterfly. It reminds me of our Monarch butterflies, only with white whereever the orange is on them. Butterflies are amazingly hard to photograph, they can move amazingly fast!

A cell phone? That's amazing.

I can never get the butterflies to sit still long enough to take a picture. Great job!
