I've been looking at this macro shot for some time, even looking at the large version, but something seems off to my eye. It might just be that this butterfly has vastly different colourings to the ones I am used to seeing, but if you look at the wing closest to the camera around the shoulder, lower bpdy and in some areas back along the length of the wing there is a really odd colouring - the like I normaly see when I pull the levels or curves lines a little too much on one direction.

However loooking at hte top of the wings they appear to be blurred in motion so it might be that this along with an unusual colouring is making me see things that arn't there - this is also a little apparent as the markings don't appear anywhere else on the photo.

Its an interesting puzzle to me in a good macro shot

Alex,Having seen your butterfly today I hardly think you are in a position to cast aspersions on other peoples work,but I'm glad I gave you an interesting puzzle.
Cheers

I have no time for these puzzles.Just had no patience for them.I got the four corners of a jigsaw,then gave up.I painted the sides of a Rubik Cube,but nobody fell for that one !! And that one where you had to guide the little ball through the maze to the other side.? There never was a way through !! Interesting puzzle ?--no such thing !!
And the last time I pulled the curves of a painted lady,I got a slap in the face for my trouble !!
Nice one Alan.
Mick.
