My wife and I visited our local butterfly center and zoo today. Here are a few pictures I took. The butterflies were shot with a 100mm macro. The zoo animals with a 300mm.


This is a Glasswing Butterfly. As the name implies and as you can see in the picture, large portions of their wings are clear.

This is an Atlas Moth. It was huge. I'm not sure what the nodules on it's left wing are.
1/250s, f/4, 3200 ISO, 100mm

This is a Rice Paper Butterfly.
1/160s, 3200 ISO, f/6.3, 100mm

Blue Morpho. Their wings aren't pigmented blue. They rely on iridescence for the color. They look spectacular in flight. The outside of their wings looks brown, so as their wings flap, the color flashes.

I don't know what kind of butterfly this is or what the stuff is on its proboscis. Is it food that it is gathering? A fungus growing?

Whooping Crane
1/640s, ISO 200, f/2.8, 300mm. Unfortunately, you can still see some of the fence pattern.

Malaysian Tiger

Baby Giraffe
1/8000s, ISO 1600, f/2.8, 300mm - I had set the ISO higher for some animals in deep shade and forgot about it. ISO 100 and 1/500s would have made more sense.
