Hi Linda..great shot..wonderful colors and details...perfect composition.


Hi Linda; spectacular colors. Love the focus on the Lantana flower and the head of the butterfly. Very impressive.

What stunning work here Linda.
The colors in this capture are amazing.
I'm curious what lens you use for these shots?
a Macro Zoom I imagine?
Just stellar light, clarity and detail all are superb.

Hello Linda, very nice macro, the lights and shadows are beautiful and you got great details in it. Well done!



This should be in a book. You really should submit your photos to an educational publishing company or something. This is terrific with the way you have captured the wings folded. I also like the natural looking background being shades of green. Details and sharpness of flowers and spots on it are wonderful.

Thanks for sharing this butterfly! It's terrific. Lisa

WOW! beautiful capture
nice light,focus and DOF

Hey, Linda, this is SO last week -- would you like some snow? We've got some cheap, LOL. All kidding aside, this is very nicely done. I like the fairly tight crop, the positioning on the flower, and the sunlight feathering through the wings.

Lovely shot of the butterfly, Linda. It's crisp and sharp, looks very real, and nice contrasting patterns and details too.
Our Monarchs are beginning to visit us now. Finding eggs on the new swan plants, that means summers on the way:)

Great composition with good light! You have captured it very well with excellent details.
Best wishes,

Hi Linda
Silvio Sorcini alias Doctor Silvio2006 will be happy like us to see this wonderful creature
great capture and wonderful pose and colours

Perfect sharpness
good work

Hello Linda,

This is a fine capture of the butterfly.
The sharp focus, showing the colours and patterns, is excellent.
I like the hint of sunlight on its wings!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Linda
I love the explosion of colors! The details on the butterfly is just amazing

love to see the nice bright greens in the bg


I am not sure about this one Linda, while the colour of the flower is good I feel that the butterfly looks a bit jaded. Was there any cropping involved? Tht may explain the sort of dotted look.

What could be more delicate and have more grace than that?
Superb macro, Linda! It makes the summer warmth linger a bit as we look onto the dreadful, cold winter! Brrr!

This i love Linda, the lighting and detail are just perfect... a great capture.

Regards Mark :)
