Attacus Atlas

Attacus Atlas

Jardin botanique de Montréal, Montreal, Qc, Canada: I was visiting the " Jardin botanique de Montréal " that hold a show call " Papillons en liberté " in a very large greenhouse. All the peoples are photographing the butterflies on the flowers or in the fruits that are displayed. I was searching a special occasion inside this two level greenhouse. This Attacus Atlas was there on this Plexiglas panel of the second level. With the lens ( 105 f2,8 ) and a small table tripod I was able to take a stable picture while I was tilted over the banister. It was a rare occasion to have a butterfly's picture with its reflexion; also the Plexiglas look a lot like water that made the picture a bit surprising.
