Just beautiful Annette. Lovely colour.
I think all of the butterflies have gone into hiding near to where i live. Did not see one when out and about today Sad

So hard to capture one, and then to get a shot of the fly with wings OPEN!


Amazing--it is as good as the best!

Learned a hard lesson recently. Forgot the macro point and shoot while walking with a long bird lens. Snapped a similar butterfly but with a 70 - 300, no macro. From 6 feet the quality is dubious, of course. Yours is excellent! TG

It may well be a 'Common' Blue, but there's nothing common about your image. What a little belter - all that fine detail in the hair all along the body and at the edges of the wings.

Holy cow...this turned out well, Annette! But sooo annoying with the wind and breeze, huh? I'll compose a shot of a flower and JUST before I'm ready to press the shutter, a breeze will sail by!


By the way, I LOVE your presentation here too Smile
