Photo of butterfly: Siproeta stelenes / Malachite (profile)

The Malachite’s wings are in the focal plane and perfectly parallel to the camera. The tips of the antenna, on the other hand, are already slightly out of focus. This extreme sharpness and very narrow depth of field are both typical characteristics of a macro lens. The wide open aperture further reduces the depth of field.
