[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo in a butterfly house on Mackinaw Island, Michigan. I used a Nikon Coolpix 5700, in macro mode.I posted this photo on TrekEarth recently. At the time, I did not know the species. Since looking at this site, I learned that this is a Ornithoptera Priamus, birdwing butterfly, from previous postings by netfalls. His useful notes taught me alot, so I made this my first post to this site.

Nice photograph. The framing is good and the lighting too. We can see the details of the butterfly's wings even in the dark part. Well done.

Hi Scott, and welcome too.
And he sits on what looks like Lantana, the bane of many countries, since it is poisonous and spreads too well.
This is a beautiful b'fly, good goagonal POV with crisp details - well done.

Nice Macro butterfly shot.I like the color&light,Nice DOF.

Beautiful shot, Scott. You get kudos for the excellent butterfly-on-flower, using the same camera I do, and visiting one of my faborite spots (Mackinaw Island)!

This is a very nice shot. The coolpix 5700 works really well in macro mode, I am always amazed with th detail of the shots.
In this one I would have been temptated to rotate a bit the image to get it more horizontal, but it is a subjective opinion. Thanks Scott!
