This beautiful butterfly graced me with its appearance about 10 days ago, fortunately I still have some bougainvillea in flower to attract whatever may be searching for nectar at present.

You could mistake this butterfly for a fallen leaf.
Well taken Carol. Smile

Your macro imagery is top drawer quality, Carol.
These two images of this beautiful butterfly are quite stunning. Detail is simply amazing.
That's what I like about epz, a different experience around every corner and the ability to look at something I will otherwise never see.

Two fantastic close ups of this beautiful butter coloured cleopatra, the details and colours are simply glorious. I can see why you led with v1, because of that deep blue sky in the top of the shot, I prefer the closer v2 myself though
