A very cool and crisp shot but for me it is a chance to get close, TFS.

This is the masterpiece of a picture of an American butterfly I'm seeing for the first time, Ruby.
This is also perhaps the sharpest capture from your compact I've seen thus far and beats any DSLR hollow.
The wood plank it sits on has a matching colour, though I would have preferred a more natural perch.

Hello Ruby,a lovely shot of this pretty little butterfly,the details are exquisite and the pose most agreeable.
A really nice photo.
This is an attractive butterfly with some unattractive feeding habits (in the adult form). It's a shame that his perch is man-made, but the exposure and sharpness are just about perfect. I think I would have cropped a little more from the left of the frame, though. The wing shape, particularly of the forewing, identifies this butterfly as a male.

A great shot of this beautifully marked Hackberry Emperor. I remember seeing alot of these quick moving butterflies while visiting in Nashville. They love to perch on wooden railings and tree trunks. I believe the female is a lighter color then the male and also larger. Well done!!
With all that has been going on with the west nile virus, I can see why the large numbers of mosquitoes would comcern you.
