I followed this butterfly for a while before it finally landed on a flower close enough for me to take a few decent shots. Because it appeared more threatening than beautiful in its closeup, insect form, I treated the photo as such.


  1. Ahh just lovelllly!

  2. Thanks, Hanan!

  3. Wow! You are so talented! :)

  4. Thanks, Robin. 😳 Actually, it's a combination of patience, going to beautiful areas, and a little experience with Photoshop. Oh, and I take so many photos at least a few have to turn out okay!

  5. great timing for that difficult shot!

  6. Thanks, ces! I had to follow it around for a while, so I was glad when it finally worked. :-)
