Hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday..
saw this butterfly traveling about the garden and snapped a few shots and thought I would share them with you... used the eye-dropper on the bottom of the wings for the coloring for frame work..
The poor computer is running on 2 cylinders now instead of one.. not that it a lot faster but may make it till I can get a new one loll

Thank you all for your continued support and the C+C on Daisy.. Thank you again Dave for the award...

Please continue to remember Rosalie in your thoughts and prayers...

A super close up shot Dawn with excellent detail and great colours. The butterfly contrasts well with the pink flower.
I hope your computer keeps going until your new one arrives.

No1 a really great shot Dawn but maybe cropped just a teeny fraction too close. The end of the wings appears lost in the framing.

Hi Dawn, Have you got any advice on taking these fantastic Macro pictures, I would dearly love to take butterfly pictures, I'm not sure where to start.
The type pictures I have been taking are at distance usually 300mm~400mm~600mm, these Macro are at the opposite end, and very pleasing to the eye, so any advice is welcome.
