I took this during a special photo session for photographers only at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD. Several Saturdays or Sundays throughout the summer the garden opens its butterfly exhibit two hours before the general public arrives and allows a limited number of photographers (for a small fee) to use tripods (which are otherwise prohibited) to photograph the insects. I found that most of the time mounting my camera on my tripod was too restrictive, so I took most of my images hand-held. I used my brand-new 105mm optically stabilized macro lens.

Very nice isolation with the shallow depth of field and distant background. Brookside is a great place.
