This beauty settled on a rose leaf in the sun and for once was happy to let me take a couple of pics instead of instantly flying away as soon as I approached!
Delicate Well captured
Good morning, Carol,
A marvellous set of shots of this butterfly masquerading as a leaf......so fascinating to see this example of naturally evolved self protection.
Good morning Carol
the details in your shots are so accurate, it is really impressive!
Have a great weekend,
The colour and camouflage is incredible.Beautiful creature and well taken Carol.
Well captured Carol. Dont you feel honourd when they stay a while.
The detail and texture is superb. A wonderful set.
Hi Carol. Another great image with great details. I agree with Carol, one should feel honoured when these fast moving butterflies give you chance to take their snaps. Really they are very very fast moving. Its really a great image...
I thought this was a leaf at first! What a lovely creature!
What fantastic close up captures, Carol, wonderful details in all, and like Viki I thought it was a leaf from the thumbnail.
well spotted and captured, so well camouflaged, rich in detail macro series Carol.
have a great weekend
What a beauty - brilliantly caught!
Beautyful, and V3 < > 2 in one shot.
So well taken >>>Excellent *****

3 great gems one could say - excellent set Carol
Morning this is a smasher, gray
fantastic set carol brilliant detail v1 for me today nice one
Delicate green but pin sharp images.
Isn't nature amazing as well as your photography Carol.
Nature at its very best and three great images. - gary
Wonderfully taken pics of what I would have mistaken for a leaf with legs. Gorgeous.
Amazing texture in these superb images. Indeed, a real beauty and perfectly disguised too.
The art of camouflage. Isn't he beautiful! He seems rather surprised at being spotted.
What a co-operative chap! Three gorgeous captures, Carol...the added bonus of a fly, too, in V3!
Three really great shots of this Brimstone! They are so well camouflaged that even if you see where they land, they can still be difficult to find
V1 stands out for me the texture of the wings is spot on ...kick harder will you Carol the sun still has not arrived
This is a Brimstone and they are usually very active unless it was full of nectar and probably needed to rest. Bitingly sharp picture as usual and wonderful positioning of your shot.
Wow, looks like it's carrying a great weight on its back. Superb.
What a fortunate find....he is such a beauty.
And what a gem carol. An outstanding image.
Beautiful shot Carol. Wonderful detail-it's got to be a Brimstone. Saw one up our local crag a few days ago but it didnt stay still long enough for me. Congrats. Paul
Beautiful images of this fancy butterfly! well done, Jennnnnnnn
Lovely Brimstone images Carol
3 good images, sharp and detailed.
Well deserves the next click, super shot.....Jack.
Excellent, all 3.........Sandy
Lovely set. Sylvia
Superb set of macro captures of this green butterfly(or Moth) with excellent clarity & color. V3 captures my fancy, today. Great work, Carol. Ciao...Peter
deserves an EC
Wonderful Brimstone capture, Carol, v.1 especially. I've hope one would settle here this year but have only seen two flying past rapidly. Good for you, superb!
Great shot. I bet he blends in well.
#3 for me as you can see its head better
Stunning series close up detail captures Carol, great colours.
Text book shot Carol - beautiful Brimstone.
Cracking set with lovely detail - V1 for me today - Ina
well seen and beautifully captured
Three fantastic close ups Carol, such wonderful detail and colour. They don't come much better than this
Excellent, such detail and so close, you do produce some wonderful pictures.
Fantastic captures, Carol. In V3 a housefly gave company to the butterfly - Raja.
Lovely shots, very pretty butterfly
Fine set again. A
Great set of images, you sure have some interesting critters in your neck of the woods, very well done,
3 excellent images carol.
Another super shot... again I think Cleopatra.
Here's an image of a Brimstone I found on google:
If you compare it to yours the pointy bits on the upper and lower wings are more pointy on the Brimstone compared to your Cleopatra. I'm not so technical as Matt
In this one the wings are fairly closed so you can't see any potential orange in the upper wings.
I had to check a Brimstone picture to be sure on this one. They are really hard to tell apart if they're not side by side or you can see the orange!
