Theo Bosboom - Orange tip at dawn


The orange tip is a beautiful small butterfly, that can be found on many places in Holland during springtime. This picture was made just before sunrise on a calm morning, showing the orange tip in its natural habitat, resting on a cuckoo flower in the vicinity of a tree.

Location: Groesbeek, the Netherlands

    This is exactly why I like compact camera macros. No worries about the background as it is going to be there.
