Day #2168

Day #2168Title: Owl Butterfly Feeding
Location: Tropical Wings, South Woodham Ferrers
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Checking down the list of Treasure Hunt Themes the other day, I realised I still hadn’t yet taken anything for #48 – The Insect World. I knew I wasn’t going to fulfill it easily with wild insect subjects at this time of year, so I took a little trip to Tropical Wings this afternoon and spent a very sticky, humid hour in their Butterfly House, chasing specimens. There were several different species flitting about between the plants. This obliging Owl Butterfly sat very still for me, while sucking the juices from fermenting fruit which had been put out for them to feed on.
