Rice Paper Butterfly

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory


Rice Paper Butterfly at Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory

Rice Paper Butterfly (Idea leuconoe)

In February of this year, I visited the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory in South Deerfield, Massachusetts.  It was my first time in a butterfly conservatory and I had a great time.  It was also the first time to use my Bowers ring flash and Tokina macro lens and both worked flawlessly.  I spend several hours at Magic Wings and not only did I have a great time, but I had many different little subjects (butterflies) on which to practice with my new equipment, so I learned a lot in a short period of time.

The photo above is of a Rice Paper butterfly (Idea leuconoe), which is found in Asia.  I’m not sure how many different species were in the conservatory, but I’m guessing a couple of dozen;  I have several more photos coming soon of other species.  Also, check out my first post on Magic Wings located here.
