[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another picture taken in a vacant lot near downtown. A place where I could take many shots, especially macros. Those who keep up with my postings on TrekNature know that.

One of these days, while going to work, I saw the flowers aren’t there anymore. This means no more macros. I guess that a house will be built in the place.

The flower looks more like a painting, but the butterfly is so pretty and dainty Livio. Good composition. Well done.
What a shame about progress and the homes filling all the empty places where the insects hang out.

The butterfly has an understated beauty next to the flamboyant flower. A very pleasing composition, with great color contrast and sharp details. Congratulations, Livio. : )
