Never have I seen one of these in real life. Not that common here in BC at least. Excellent macro. Outstanding. TG
Great macro, sharp as a tack......and I think that the flash makes the contrast a bit too high.

You've captured this delicate butterflys fragile beauty perfectly Fred. The detail and clarity is exceptional. I bet it must have been a real pane to try and photograph this one in a humid glass house!Wink I'll get me coat!Blush
