Valley Of The Butterflies
Lens: smc PENTAX-DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Rhodes Island, Greece ISO: 1250 Shutter Speed: 1/50s Aperture: F5.6

From Wikipedia: "The Valley of the Butterflies is home to thousands of the Rhodes subspecies of the Jersey Tiger Moth (Euplagia quadripunctaria rhodosensis) that cover the entire landscape after the wet season (late May) due to the high humidity in the area. The Oriental Sweetgum trees in Petaloudes Valley give off a scent that attracts the moths and creates a unique biotope."
Our visit was off season so we only spotted one butterfly, on the other hand. it was very calm and tourist free.
The corners came out softer then usual, I guess it's the combination of the aperture opening and focus point, which was probably in the center.

This is a side of Rhodes I've yet to discover, I will certainly look out for next time I'm back, after seeing your wonderful images, especially the first one.
