Behind The Lens

Location
Photo was taken in Butterfly House next to the National History Museum at London
Time
Sunday afternoon
Lighting
Photo was taken without any additional sources of light.
Equipment
Camera Pentax K-5 and Tamron 90mm/2.8 lens
Inspiration
I always loved butterflies and I have many photos of those beautiful creatures.
Editing
Just contrast and saturation adjustment
In my camera bag
My camera, couple of lenses, cloth for lenses, filters..
Feedback
Patience, patience...The way to aproach butterflies is very unique co every amateur of macro photos with living insects have to learn how to do it. Hide your face behind the camera so butterfly cannot be scared:-D
