Das ist wirklich ein prächtiges Exemplar! Deine anderen Fotos von der Schmetterlingsfarm sind auch sehr schön gelungen.

Ja, selbst Schmetterlinge haben oft kein Mitleid mit uns Fotografen. ;-)

your welcome.:) I adore butterflies. I just wish they wouldn't flit around so much. I have a hard time capturing a good photo of them. I may have a photo of two together I took recently. I will put it up if the photos are any good.

No the bullies. They should put on a show for us. We are making them famous.:giggle: I love them so much but Only see a few kinds here. I did get a rare butterfly photo. It wasn't even suppose to be in this area but there are lots of them here. At least last year there was.
