Seen this species for the first time, Brenda. It's a beauty. Very nice POV to show the butterfly in its glorious aspect.
Rich note with plenty of info on the subject.
Thanks and regards.

Amazing butterfly Brenda! Great photo with fantastic colors and very good sharpness.
The bright autumn colours of this butterfly is beautiful and very eye-catching. I very much like the classical, open winged pose you captured here as well as the point of view. The butterfly displays lovely against the green leaves as backdrop. Thanks for sharing a sun filled macro. Best regards.

whilst it seems a strange name for an orange butterfly your photo portrays it in its habitat beautifully.
Just a little tight at the top of the frame but still a cracking shot,well done.
Best regards Les.
got to see a new butterfly. nice. and very gorgeous too. good clarity, but high exposure. well, that's your signature style. we have already discussed the topic before. so, no criticism on that :)
what i feel is that, if the butterfly could have been taken from a bit far, i.e., if some space could be given around the subject, it could appear more comfortable.
never mind. the uniqueness and beauty of your subject wash out all :)
a good catch. thanks for sharing.

Very beautiful butterfly in this photo. A bit tiny in the composition, but excellent in sharpness and taken from a very good POV. Good Depth of field.

A real beauty which I am not familiar with at all. Love the close crop, as it allows us to see it's unique features and attractive colors in fine detail. Your map site is pretty neat also. Well done!!
