[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An old photo I dug up because I wanted to be a part of Treknature again.
I went out with my camera a while today but was disappointed with all my shot. I know I'll get back into the swing of things soon enough.

This is a Buckeye with wings shut (duh! ha ha) According to the National Audubon Society "Field Guide to Butterflies", this is a Brush-footed butterfly. Brush-footed refers to the shortened front legs.

Nice to see you posting again even if this is from your archives! Hope you'll soon get back into the swing!! This is a lovely capture of a beautiful butterfly! Lovely colours and fine details that stand out against the warm and smooth background.

Hello Angelina,

A fine shot of this butterly which is new to me. The eyespots show up well, as does the rest of the pattern.
The dof isolates it well from the b/g.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Figured....You always were a part...prolly one of the biggest parts for me...TN would not have me if you were not there to hold me up and give me notions, ideas and things to improve...Your my angel! I am so happy you posted!

Hi Angeline, it's funny because I thought of you not so long ago and as I had forgotten your name, I couldn't trace you in TN. And there you are after being absent for a while! And with a superb picture, it is gorgeous, Angelina, very deep in colours, sharp and soft. The butterfly is a beauty and you captured it so well. Welcome back, hope to see more from you! bye bye,


Hi Angelina,
A nice capture of this beautiful buck eye butterfly. Superb composition with good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Dear Angelina,
perfectly composed lovely presentation, combining precise details with a delightful atmospherical softness, the Buckeye seeming to be dipped into an ocean of colours. Great work.
Thank you!
With best regards,

Hello Angelina.

Excellent macro, nice composition and colors.
