Butterfly by richardcreese

Butterfly

Peacock butterfly that is missing one of his antenna. Must have taken 100 shots and learned a lot about butterfly's. They seem to close they wings in the sun and open them in the shade.
Stunning!! Great capture.Gorgeous natural bokeh. I love learning about the insect world through the lense of a camera too.:)

Just viewed large....Awesome!was he missing his left antennae ? Wonder how that affects him finding certain flowers.That is the organ they "smell" with.
