A rather fantastic macro photograph Jenn, full of gorgeous natural colour, superb detail, which enhances the beauty of this rather handsome looking Painted Lady so very well indeed.

"Brushfooted" is a new term for me as well. Lovely detailed capture, Jenn, looks good on the floral display and against that bg.

Beautifully clear - and a very nice simplicity to it, allowing the attention to be fully on the butterfly.
