It's kind of strange seeing this on rocks, Mike, but I like the effect. Strong compostion; I like to see these lovely things centered.

Very nice shot Mike,
Great details, colours and composition. I'm not too keen on the BG, it hides the detail of the wings.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend

Very cool shot, Mike. Sharp details and good colors. I really like the way you can see the pebbles through the transparent wings. Well done. TFS. : )

Good capture ! This is a nice kind of bg too.
BTW, I'll be in Quebec in mid July(remember you told me I should head up North when I last was in Mass. ?). I am hoping to shoot quite a few north american insects then.

Very good macro, Mike.
It's a beautiful butterfly. Good POV, well composed and nice colours.
Very well done, my friend.
I hope you will hear a thud very soon ;-)

Beautifull insect Mike. I know how hard to capture and shy. Good details and sharpness. I like BG, looks like nature's puzzle ;-)

Hi Mike, nice shot. Good details here, DOF selected well. You may find that they will bask on the ground under a certain ambient temperature, when the heat is ample then they will use the perches more often. Nice composition, almost B&W! Well done.

Wonderful dragonfly capture.I think he was there for sunbathing and swimming;)Colors,details and composition are perfect.
Have nice weekend and tanks for sharing.
It's a nice macro with good details and good DOF. The exposure is good too. I like the unnatural BG a little bit less. Well done & TFS!
