Orange Sulphur

By BerthaDBluze
I liked the color of this little one. And that big green eye! I had a few people laughing at me as I crawled around on the ground after it...then laid down across the trail when it landed on these dandilions. Definitely worth it though...I got the shot and they didn't! Smile

The things we do!!!!!! Worth it though, the head is nice and sharp, with no distractions in the background.

The big soft green bakcground makes the butterfly stand out real good in this one.

Thanks John, Greg, Beanie, Maggie, and Denka! I think it was some half dead grass behind the little guy. Whatever it was worked pretty well!

That is a special capture Bertha . Sharp and a great background .

I remember many year's ago my husband had taken me to an old railway yard for engines in Barry S/Wales . I kept seeing these Chalkhill Blue butterflies flying around quite low . One of the men asked me what was I photographing and before long I had at least 5 men trying to take these pretty butterflies instead of rusty engines xx
