[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I photographed this colorful Gulf Fritillary while in Nicaragua visiting my daughter. I remember it was pretty windy with a few scattered clouds over head. The wind made the flowers bend and sway in its breeze.

The full sun was extremely bright, so I had to experiment a bit while trying to photograph. I would find a subject in the viewfinder and wait not only for a brief reprieve from the wind, but also for a cloud to hid the full sun in order to correctly expose each shot.

Hi Ron,magnificent capture of the gulf fritillary that i seen many times during my trips,especially in Cuba,Brazil and Dominican Rep. The pic is lovely,very bright colors and fine details,not easy in this diagonal light. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ron,
Beautiful coloured butterfly. Very good captured. Nice ficus on its eye. BG is very good too. It could have been stunning one if that bright leaf wasn't there, but it's OK.
Thanks for sharing,
P,S - I'm glad your computer now with you :-)
And nice to hear that you like that 'Lesser Flamingo' picture.

Hi Ron

Despite the difficulties you did an excellent shot, very nice contrasting BG, great DOF, great sharpness and clarity, very beautiful brilliant colors



une très belle macro, Ron.
J'aime bien les couleurs et le flou en arière.
Bonne soirée

Hi Ron,
Your experimeent with lights were quite successful, I must say. You managed to find the best balance as the exposure seems perfect and the contrast between the bright and shady parts is remarkable. Fantastic colors as well. The subject seems a touch oversharpened, but the photo's very spectacular overall. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László
