I'm posting because of Jim (jmirah) who is hounding me daily about posting something...anything...to treknature. I'm not worried about points. I haven't been very dedicated about viewing new photos on TN.

Hi Angelina . This is an unusual POV to be looking at the Butterfly. Its almost head on. I must say i like it for somthing a bit different. Taken with bright colours. and fine detail. Well taken TFS,

Wonderful sharp capture.
Great colors and light.

Miracles never cease to happen...Cameras have a place in the Universe and I could hear yours crying across the Cosmos as it lay dormant in your sock drawer hidden under your purple long johns...I could no longer sit idly by as the travesty of an object of purpose not fulfilling it's destiny continued...Now, the Universe exists in harmony once again...All is as it should be...

Anyway, nice capture of the Gulf Fritillary...I would have cropped it a little but that is me...Maybe someone who is not afraid of your wrath will do a WS...LOL...But really, and I think I speak for a lot of us on TN when I say, we miss your beautiful butterfly and nature photos...Glad you posted :-)
Your Amigo

That's such a beautiful sunny shot, Angelina, I like the colours so much and you captured such a pretty butterfly.
Nice memories of summertime, thanks

TFS thanks for sharing

Thanks for your temporary drop in Angelina, so nice to see something from you again. Your unique viewpoint made this b.fly look like the flukes of a whale! A pleasant effect indeed MF!

Hi Angelina.
What an attractive subject and pictorial image. Flowers are amazing but pose of the butterfly and POV are exceptional. Bravo. Amazing picture.
