Macro photografie is another passion of mine. Unfortunately I dont´t have macro equipment for my Nikon D700. But I want to share this macro capture with you which I took in 2009 with a small Pentax 110D together with a Pentax standard zoom 55-200mm and an achromat +3.

This little fellow at the pic is sleeping. I was at the place on the evening a day before I took this shot in order to watch where the butterfly ´ll sit down to sleep. The next day I went there again around 8 o´clock in the morning. The butterfly was still sitting at the same place and was still sleeping. I had a lot of time to install the tripot and to take some shots.
I hope you´ll like it.
Have a nice weekend.
