Photographs from a Recent Photographic Expedition to Santa Cruz Island, Channel Islands National Park, California
Santa Cruz Island
Lorquin's Admiral (Limenitis lorquini)
The Lorquin's Admiral is a native butterfly to Southern California. I photographed this individual in a small "studio" that I set-up on the spot. She was momentarily captive, shot in a miniature studio, and then released.
