Beautiful capture of this little guy Mary.

thank-you Kumiko. I had a choice of two images as I did not shoot that day. I went out and this was what I brought home from walk in fields. It's too bad that neither Saturday's or Sunday's work matched this. So I have to go back out again tomorrow. thursday I sing again and so am split between two worlds. I must sing like this picture or better. better would be nice. berg and strauss very difficult so I must sing well. better than this picture.

That's an awesome shot of that fuzzy butterfly! Those colors are really neat and look at his striped feelers and legs. I like it! :)

I pretty much agree with the fashion comments, particularly the stripy antennae. Some of them have stripy bums. You can be happy because I didn't feed this little one to the frogs. Frogs have a weakness for fluttery things with wings. But the present frogs don't seem to know what to make of butterflies and this little feller is strong enough to beat off a frog three time his size .It's pretty amazing to see such a wee creature beat off a far more substantial frog.

I really like this shot. Love the colors, clarity and composition. Well done.

A very beautiful capture, Mary! Love the gentle colours & soft focus.

thank-you, thank-you... the softness comes from near evening in shadows. about that time they get very sleepy like bees and it is easier to find them consternating. my frogs would jump at it, but they haven't yet figured out how to eat butterflies, so I end up releasing them.

Wow, a really nice capture of this fuzzy little one. I am so glad he posed so patiently for you...

Terrific capture of this butterfly...perfect framing, DOF and superb detail! A special look with the silky soft wings. I hope you will submit it to some other POTD sites for recognition!

thanks brandon and Linn-- I had choice of two shots which reveals just how ambitious I am. So I too this one over the other one.. Maybe I had 20 shots that day, but they were only of two subjects... and I know i could have done more, searched further, etc, but sometimes I am just really tired. So was nice that the argus came out so well.
