Blue Morpho, Niagara Parks, CanadaThe Niagara Parks, Butterfly Conservatory is a wonderful place, especially for photographers. You can get really close to butterflies and take a shoot without hurry. On sunny days the light in the Conservatory is warm and bright enough to take photos without a flashlight, even with ISO 100. Taking a photo of the Blue Morpho with open wings was really a challenge. It could be seen everywhere but only with closed wings not showing it's full beauty. After chasing it for 15min, the butterfly gave me one chance to take a photo of his wonderful blue appearance. By chance, it rested in the middle of a large rock in a bright sun spot.
