Butterflies will be my theme for this week. This little guy was so cooperating, I could not believe it. The sun was shining on it and the other photographers around were not paying attention to this little one (it's a 1:1 ratio). I think they missed something really nice... Oh well, their loss, not mine!

Looks like the butterfly is going for a hike in the flowers! I really like the pattern on its wings.

That's lovely! The reflected light from the azaleas make the the wing look great.

I like how quickly you found a new subject. Butterflies are so colorful and full of details. Your DOF is very nice here.

Good looking macro of this butterfly. The flowers seem a little bright to me though, but that may be just me and my monitor.

Wow, fantastic! Lovely spring colors, and nicely composed. With such bright light, you handled the highlights nicely. I agree, those other photographers definitely missed out on this opportunity!
