Interesting how the red from the flower reflects onto the underside of the butterfly's body. The red glow gives the butterfly a look of bellying up to a small fireplace within the flower. The light blue background also serves to emphasize this red glow.

It's interesting that the effect doesn't scale up. People who paint historical miniatures are forced to make artificial changes in shading to make them look "real."

I'm not sure I like it, but that's what there was.

Mrs. Barbarian and I were about to go into the butterfly house for some shots. The best two shots happened before we went in, in the garden outside.

I also got a swallowtail outside:

Shouldn't be a problem if you can get your full-sized subject to stand correspondingly close to a really big strongly-lighted saturated red reflector.
