Monochrome is always special !!

Eamon said...

Lovely - showing that you don't need colour to show colour.

ProdigalWife said...

Agree with Eamon--you can really see the color in your shot! Truly beautiful.

Aileni said...

The detail and the exquisite composition make up for the lost colour. I would not appreciate it in the same way.

Liz said...

That is a beautiful photo.

I'm just catching up with Photohunt and everyone already has their mono up!

Jenn Jilks said...

I cannot honestly appreciate monochrome, since we are so from November snows to April's ice! But it is a lovely shot!

Carver said...

I love this. It almost shimmers.

Rambling Round said...

Such a beautiful crisp shot!

Judy said...

I love the shot!! The detail is amazing! Do you remember when all photots were in black and white?

PERBS said...

Neat monochrome but I want to see it in color now!!!!!!!!!! Ü I have not been sucessful in capturing even one butterfly this sumemr YET! I tried catching a tiny white one but all I got was with its wings closed and it looked like a white triangle out of place. sigh It is a beautiful photo nonetheless.

I see I missed yestedays so shall go comment there also.

Ellie said...

That was a Hollywood ready butterfly - never met one that would pose for me - great respect for that find!

judi said...

You are turning into a grand showoff!
you are buggy good. :)

James said...

That picture would look great in color or b&w. Very nice.

Jacob said...

Lacy and wispy. Perfect!

Hope you had a great weekend.

I never thought of a butterfly in B&W but it's beautiful. Sort of looks like a very delicate china.

I would not have thought to do this in monochrome, but it is really beautiful.

Regina said...

Such a beauty. Looks great even in b/w.

floreta said...

nice contrast! my eye is drawn to the whiteness of the flower.

Leslie: said...

Omigosh! This is an amazing shot! :D

RuneE said...

I must admit that I had to look twice - but I was rewarded: The light made the butterfly almost transparent in monochrome!

Robin said...

So delicated and soft looking. Beautiful shot.

Clueless in Boston said...

Very elegantly done, as usual. Have a great week.

Daryl said...

Exquisite!

Vita Stunder said...

Beautiful composed!!
I agree with Eamon - you don't need colour to show colour!

Have a great week!

That is simply stunning! I love this in B&W!

Tom said...

I would not have thought a butterfly in B & W would have made such a good shot... but boy dose this prove me wrong.. stunning shot.

My postings today show my son: Sam The Roofer and a very nice Moorland View and Poem

Linnea W said...

Wow! Even in black and white it's gorgeous...the patterns on the wings really pop out.

storyteller said...

WOW ... it's lovely in color, but AMAZING in monochrome ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Patti said...

I just admired the color version..the B&W is incredibly dramatic. I don't know which I prefer! Must I choose?
