The traveler

By dawnmichelle    
Hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday..
saw this butterfly traveling about the garden and snapped a few shots and thought I would share them with you... used the eye-dropper on the bottom of the wings for the coloring for frame work..
The poor computer is running on 2 cylinders now instead of one.. not that it a lot faster but may make it till I can get a new one loll

Thank you all for your continued support and the C+C on Daisy.. Thank you again Dave for the award...

Please continue to remember Rosalie in your thoughts and prayers...

No1 a really great shot Dawn but maybe cropped just a teeny fraction too close. The end of the wings appears lost in the framing.

An excellent set of shots of this beautiful butterfly, it's a lot more colourful and spectacular than most of the UK ones. My pc is extremely slow and geriatric too, hence my lack of comments and why i'm so slow to respond at times!

A great set of closeups; a bit of a shame where the wings are clipped by the border in a few of them but I love all the details, colours and patterns you've captured.
#5 my favourite, getting all the detail of the flower too and I love the POV

Hi Dawn, Have you got any advice on taking these fantastic Macro pictures, I would dearly love to take butterfly pictures, I'm not sure where to start.
The type pictures I have been taking are at distance usually 300mm~400mm~600mm, these Macro are at the opposite end, and very pleasing to the eye, so any advice is welcome.
