Nikon D200 35mm & 50mm ISO400 for 1/45 sec

This beauty (Gulf Fritillary) exited out of its chrysalis in my son's bug cage.
We promptly opened the container up and allowed the butterfly to dry out and get some sun. As soon as the sun hit it, the wings began to open and close. Was quite amazing.

Unfortunately, I do not have a macro lens on hand. In order to get this shot, I had my 35mm F/2 lens mounted to my D200, I then placed my 50mm f/1.8 up against the mounted lens. A cheap macro trick.
