[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An upside-down butterfly hangs on to a leaf. It's amazing how they can support themselves with those thin legs.

I had a tough time with the DOF in this picture, as I wish all 4 legs would have been within the DOF.

This photo was taken freehand at the Butterfly section of the Toronto Zoo. I hope you enjoy it.

Hi Rusty,
Great POV of this pretty butterfly. I believe it is a tree nymph (also called a rice paper butterfly). Good exposure and sharp details. It would be good if the DOF could have included the legs and the bottom of the wings.
TFS. : )
