Zerynthia rumina
I am becoming an expert in attracting the butterflies, I don't catch them, I just stick my finger and they climb on it.
When I am "hunting" I always use my Sigma zoom 70-300, its good for macro and for long distance to get birds. When I saw this butterfly I waited until it posed and I got closer and closer always shouting, when I got too close to shout I decided to have a proper look closer, the butterfly didn't move so I gently sticked my left hand finger and he climbed on it. Using only my right hand I changed my lens to 18-55 Canon and I started to shout really close, after 5 minutes and a lot of photos he flew away.

Olá Luis,

Excelente macro. Lindas cores e excelente definição.

Preciosa Luis, esta está captada con más claridad que la mía jeje.

Hello Luis,
You're really lucky guy - when you've a possibility to get so close to this rare butterfly ;-D
I don't like so much fingers in "nature" pictures but sometimes everything is allowed ;-D


Hello Luis great macro I wish they would come so close to me I have to resort to a telephoto lens. Details look fine. tfs rgds Necip
