I might have been a little peckish when I was waiting to take the shot. Contrary to popular belief they taste nothing like butter. On the other hand he did fly circles around me afterwards.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

This is a beauty, and quite dramatic. I thought it might be better, cropped square, but liked yours better regardless of the proximity of the subject and close border. The darkness coming from behind on the background makes the difference. Well done, Wendell.

One butterfly would not make any meal for a boy your size, so why destroy such a nice creature ...
Nay, naughty boy, Wendell, shame on you LOL

They are so delicate after being battered and war torn nipping through those different plants, regardless of thorns and such!

Good find...and an even better photo on this terrific background

A painted lady - somewhat battered but hanging in there - good take.

Is it alive? Looks like you have glued it to the board. Well done Wendell.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.
