160. Reproduction.....

I never knew this was how butterflies did it!! (Looks a bit precarious to me!) I met up with my U3A camera group today at a Zoo/Tropical Butterfly farm. At least it was almost as humid and hot inside as it was outside and the camera didn't steam up!

A good morning was had by all, I didn't have many noteworthy photos myself, but was quite pleased with this one, at least they were intent on what they were doing and didn't fly off straight away!
Wow, excellent capture. I guess we learn something everyday. I didn't know how they did it either.

Gorgeous capture! They stand out beautifully against the colours in the bokeh. Butterflies or dragonflies mating are like ballet dances.
