This is a last-minute entry and I guess if I'd had one more minute before rollover I think I may have withdrawn it. I think I got enticed by the small field of entries.

This butterfly had just emerged from his Chrysalis earlier in the day and was sitting on a plant so I thought I'd play with my new lens.

Some more contrast, and even more color would make this really stand out. Nice capture.

Ahhhh the fussy butterfly, I wish I could see his feet to see where he had landed and could see who he was considering for a wife.
