Pic of the Week: Sub Tropical Butterfly by Sandra McCreery

editorial image

I WAS on holiday in Madeira a couple of years ago enjoying the view from the municipal park in Madeira’s capital, Funchal, when this butterfly landed on a plant nearby.

Fortunately I had my camera on and ready and took it freehand quickly before it flew off.

The butterfly is a Monarch ‘Danaus Plexippus’ which resides in the Madeira archipelago.

I liked the contrast between the black head and the orange wings.

The camera used was a Panasonic DMC-F238 and it was taken at 320th of a second at f5.6 and ISO80.
