always wanted a good shot of this species , very difficult in the low light in chester zoo butterfly house. flash no good with the transparent wings.
this was the first time i have used 5d2 /100mmL in there.took half hour in plastic bag to aclimatise cam to the heat, no problem after that

iso 2000, f5.6, 1/40 th 2 frames focus stacked. only very slight noise reduction in lightroom needed.

A lovely shot of a very pretty butterfly, Phil.
Anytime that you need your camera/lenses acclimatised to heat and humidity feel free to send them down to me in Brisbane.

Forgive me if this question sounds naive, but if the wings are partially transparent, shouldn't you be able to see in this image the border of the larger pair of wings through the smaller ones? After all, you can see the insect's body show through the wings at the bottom.

Edit: When I did a google image search for these butterflies, it seems that the larger forewings are shaped oddly, so that they don't really overlap the smaller hindwings.... How interesting, I didn't know that!

A most enjoyable photo of an interesting butterfly!

It is interesting about how its wings overlap, producing the illusion that some sort of Photoshopping might have been used to synthesize an image showing both wings but without seeing sections of the wing behind the front wing. In reality this is just an illusion of its unusual wing shape and their position. In looking around the net, most of the photos I found also show this illusion, so it must be fairly independent of exactly what angles are used during photography.
