Nice close up Camera Girl. I have also been seeing lots of these butterflies in my area. Must be a good year for them.

I've seen several around here, but they have successfully avoided my camera—so far. This is a well composed shot. They are beautiful creatures.

Lovely shot! It looks so simple yet is surprisingly tough to do - well done!

Very nice, EG!! With the millions of them swirling around you'd think I would have had better luck than I've had in getting a nice shot of one.

Hi there - great picture. I've had a bad summer for butterflies, so it’s nice to see it is actually possible to get decent pictures of them!
