Diaethria 88
Scientific name (Nombre Científico): Diaethria
Order (Orden): Lepidoptera, Family: Nymphalidae

This was an interesting picture, the butterfly came into my house and went to the glass window, I took several pictures trying to use the white background of the wall in the other side and this is what I got with the reflexion in the glass.

Taken in jpeg, rotated, cropped and resized. flash, no tripod. Shutter speed: 1/50 sec., Aperture: F4.0, ISO 100.

Esta foto la logre cuando la mariposa entro a la casa y se poso en la ventana de vidrio, la tome de tal manera que el fondo fuera la pared blanca que estaba al otro lado y salio un interesante reflejo.

Place: Rincones de Monticello 1800 msnm, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia.
Date: ago 25 2007

Hello Juan,
funny picture with a beautiful butterfly.
Thanks for sharing this one,

Hi Juan
Very nice image maybe not perfectly sharp but I like it. Good composition great idea
Best wishes

Hello Juan,

This is a very good symmetric and original composition and the butterfly is extremely beautiful! The white wall provided a great background as it looks neutral gray through the glass of the window. The picture looks artistic!
I find the colors somewhat dim or maybe the picture lacks contrast and saturation. The exposure seems to be well controlled. It is a very interesting picture.

Hi Juan
Nice catch of number 88! TFS


Hi Juan,

very nice view, the reflection adds a very good effect.

espectacular esta foto, con un toque muy artistico, aprovechando de este reflejo sobre el cristal. Parece una mariposa con las alas desplegadas.

Buena composición y buenas luces y saturacion de colores.

Hasta otra,
