Butterflies and Moths

Part of Luminar Bug Photography Awards 2020

Open Judging Results
Brief

The bugs in this category should be members of the Lepidoptera order – butterflies, and day or night-flying moths. Most will have wings that are coloured, either for camouflage or distraction – the exception being those with clear wings. Caterpillars should also be entered into this category.

The 'Butterflies and Moths' category is sponsored by Alter – an innovative camera accessory company who introduced their patented Rapid Filter System to the market last year. The RFS & RFS+ are hinged lens filter adapters designed specifically to bring speed and convenience to creators in any situation.
