Excellent capture as always, Carol, can't decide whether I prefer the black background or the more natural background in V2! So, it's half a vote for each!
Hope you soon get your connection sorted.

Pure perfection Carol, these are outstanding images of this beautiful butterfly. I agree with Ina I'm looking forward to going out snapping the flutterbys again

Grr... very tricky but still I think Cleopatra. I think females don't have the orange checking the web so just going on wing shape.

Great shots though. I prefer the dark background as the other background is a bit distracting... but prefer the angle you have on the butterfly in that green backgrounded shot.

I don't think backgrounded is a real word however! Smile
