Good morning, Carol: another beautifully captured set of butterfly images, with on this occasion V 3 my favourite......I like the way the sun is rim lighting the wing tips, and the detail is excellent.

What a beauty with "eyes" on the tail... Lovely use of light and focus in all shots! IB
Hi Carol, excellent set of images, loved the V1, V2 and V3. V1& V2 excellent eye contact and in V3 the rim of the wings shinning beautifully in the sun light.. Excellent set..

So pretty! Wish we had them here. Don't think we can lay claim to any "blues". Perhaps if they are as tiny as this one, I simply don't notice!

All very beautiful, but it's V3 that really appeals to me today, not sure why, but I think it's that little bit of sunlight shining onto it.
28 Jun 2011 10:59AM
Lovely captures. V2 is my favourite.

What a beautiful set Carol, perfect focus and lighting!

Hi Carol, good to be back at the keyboard again. Delays all the way on our return journey from Luxembourg. It was lovely to see our youngest 2 grandchildren. These butterflies are similar to the ones I spotted in Mauritius, they are very small and flighty so you did well to capture them. Sylvia

v3 is 'my top pick,' today, Carol, of these four 'outstanding images' of this lovely Long-tailed Blue Butterfly.

A fabulous set of close ups Carol, i've never seen this blue butterfly before. You've captured its markings so superbly
28 Jun 2011 10:38PM
I like them all, but will go for V4 as they are really difficult to capture with their wings open, great shot.

29 Jun 2011 8:41AM
Superb images Carol, I wish we had those in Britain. All cracking captures, v's 3 & 4 especially. Rare and desirable Wink
