Happy Easter to everybody here on TN.

I went on a 4 day's Easter-trip, now I'm back with "fresh" shots ;-)
This is a Blue Morpho (Morpho deidamia) from South America.
It's wingspan is 15 - 17 cm.
I put in this butterfly smaller in the left down corner, so you can see it with open wings - wonderful blue.

This shot was made in the Maximilian-Park Hamm at the butterfly-house.
I'd like to say thanks to Heinz (wallhalla15),
he already showed us plenty of beautiful butterflies of this place and he gave me the idea also to visit this marvelous butterfly-house. It was an exciting day.

Excellent DOF and POV!
5* and TFS!

Hello Sabine,
This is a wonderful capture of a butterfly! I like it blue wings too. pov, dof, framing, sharpness... all are perfect. Great contribution, thank you.

Hello Sabine!
What a lovely capture you got here! This is one of the prettiest butterflies on the earth, I guess. The image is perfect in all respects.
Very thoughtful of you to post the open wing version alongside. This image, as such, turns into an important ducument.
Happy Easter!

Hi Sabine,

This butterflyhouse must be great. You make me very curious. The pattern in the wings of the big butterfly is marvellous. Great combination of colours as well.


Very nice double capture Wishnu, fantastic colours, amazing details. Impressive work, very well done.

Hi Sabine,
Beautiful shot on the Blue Morpho. The exposure is spot on here. Colors and detail are amazing. Great composition and framing. I like how you have showed the open wing view with the smaller shot. Very well done!

Hi Sabine,
bin etwa spät dran. ;-) Dein Himmelsfalter ist wunderschön geworden. Du hast aber auch ein ausgesprochen "frisches" Exemplar erwischt. Meine sehen alle arg lediert aus. Was ich aber hierbei feststelle, daß dieser Falter mit Blitz fotografiert, viel besser zur Geltung kommt. (farblich viel schöner)
Qualitätsmäßig sind Deine Fotos sowieso immer spitze. Danke für den Morpho. Freue mich schon auf weitere Fotos.

p.s. werde jetzt einen Neonfalter reinstellen.

Hi Sabine,
Amazing shot, excellent detail and colours. I thought one was really big and one was small before I read your note :-) A beautiful Butterfly, very well presented and good note, a great post.

Hi, Sabine.
Wonderful duo. Excellent exposure and DOF. Both butterflies are very sharp. Beautiful colors.

Hallo Sabine,

An excellent shot, Sabine, of the beautiful underside of this blue morpho.
The details are very sharp and well exposed, with beautiful colors and great POV.
What fun that butterfly house must be.

Great capture Sabine. Amazing difference in size of the two butterflies and a wonderful setup with both in the same picture. The composition is great and the colours wow. Very good dof with lots of details in both subjects.
