Perfect Imperial Moth
Finding wild butterflies and moths without tattered wings is a big challenge. The best answer to this challenge is to raise your own subjects. Or better yet, get one of the kids to do it for you.
This moth was photographed in-studio and released to the wild soon after it was able to fly. No editing was needed for those delicate wings.
