Say hello to Veronica. She is a butterfly. Her family is very large and commonly seen in the Malibu area. She is a Variable Checkerspot (Euphydryas chalcedona). If you look closely you can see she sports a red mohawk hairstyle, a distinctive trait of her family. When she was young she was a spiky black caterpillar with red spots.


Well thanks for that info.
Love the mohawk!

Thanks guys! When it comes to chasing butterflies (and that's pretty much what it is I have to do to get these photos), lighting is all luck, heck, getting a butterfly in the shot is sometimes luck!

Thanks! I have a circular polarizing filter that stays on the lens but seems to me to only play a role when light is reflected on the water. I only adjusted the ISO and f-stop but because it was already twilight and in the shade, I didn't have to do much to get the 1 second exposure time.
I didn't notice it at all when taking the shot but when I was editing (very rudimentary, mostly crop, a little noise reduction and sharpening when needed, and desaturation in this case) I noticed a figure standing in the water, or at least I imagine it.

I can see that - like someone striking a "vogue" pose.

Very nice - cool focal range.  Do you use any neutral-density filters or polarizers for long exposures like that or just adjust the ISO and F-stop/aperture?

Nice shot! Me gusta!

Too bad it was completely clouded that night here. Figured some some nice backdrops, but alas.
