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.

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

Liz Hinds 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.

Janet 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.

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

You are turning into a grand showoff!

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

Lowell said...

Lacy and wispy. Perfect!

Beautiful monochrome photo, EG.

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.

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

Daryl said...

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 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?
