Lovely shot, Jenn. Captured in such excellent detail, the silvery grey wings show up so well against the greenish b/g tones.
Regards, Ronnie.

WoW, Jenn,...such a super macro image of this lovely Appalacian Azure butterfly. Great work. I'm really aching for a really good "butterfly photo-up, soon." They seem to occur in bunches, and I have not had a decent one in the last 6 months. Any secrets, that you may have, for increasing your chances?? Regards...Peter

I think you did a wonderful job of getting the focal plane parallel with its wings. Nicely done, deserves an award, or something.
