The question is now about the beauty. A butterfly is associated with nice colours and patterns. A moth is associated with ugliness. What about this cabbage butterfly? Leave your choice in the comments.
I still practice macros on all hikes and walks. This one was a fairly good (sharp with correct focus) shot out of the hand.
This week, I was in the botanical garden for taking pictures. I did this fucus stacking exposure with 27 images. Finally the results are good enough to share it with you. There are still some imperfect areas, but in total the result is okay.
The blossom is as large as a ping-pong ball. Shot was done with help of a Sumikron macro rail. 27 exposures blended into one image.
