Thank you to all who took time to view, comment and vote on my previous upload, very much appreciated.
What a great image, David, wonderful detail and an excellent presentation. Carol
Exquisite detail on this one David, a beautiful image,
beautiful detail and so sharp, a lovely shot
it would have been good to see one this year, in these parts, never mind photograph one.
Especially with open wings
A beautiful image David. Perfect focusing showing superb detail on the whole of the wingspan. I wish it were mine.
It does look 3D.
Thank you all for votes and comments, these lovely butterflies had a great year in my area, the best I have seen in the last 5 or so years, this was taken early evening, my favourite time for butterfly photography, as they have settled down getting the last rays of the sun and are much more approachable, I was lucky to find this one with the wings pretty much on a level plane.
Fantastic capture great work well done.
Superb detail David and perfect focus, excellent photography!
Such a pretty one too .... ours all looked rather shabby towards the end of the summer.
Exquisite macro capture David. The detail, patterning, tones and textures of the wings are remarkable. This beauty is so well isolated from its background - it has 3D effects for me - stunning.
A beautiful and fresh looking specimen, the clarity and detail are wonderful
Thank you for your many comments lately-- I do so appreciate them from a butterfly expert! and expect to be home late tomorrow-- will be back to posting, etc soon!
