|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I don't have a whole lot of any sort of wildlife shots under my belt, but this is one of the few I've deemed a keeper. I found this little fella (the beauty) working on a milk thistle plant (the beast) along a trail I was hiking, so I stopped to take a few shots, and it obliged.|
This was back in my "point and shoot" days with my Stylus 300.

I kind of missed this one. For some reason I didn't associate it with you! : )
It is a really nice capture. I have a Olympus 750 point and shoot and I am always impressed with the color as I am with this shot of yours. The thistle is wonderful.

I think the butterfly is a Swallowtail. They are a larger species of butterfly and fairly common. The yellow Swallowtail perched on the purple Thistle is a nice compliment. The colour of background rocks are a bit of distraction. Interesting just the same.

Very well focused with sharp details and well saturated colours.The butterfly could well be a Canadian Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio canadensis).Nicely captured.TFS

Great shot Tim. I like the composition, colours and technical quality and visibility of details.Very good job.TFS
Wow!!!! This is a great shot and I like this title which is most appropriated :) This is beautiful specie well caught (even if focus is more on the flower) - and exposed - (Horia published one similar I think).
I would have applied a little (more?) noise reduction on the BG just to blurred it more ;) Congrats because this is really well done!!!
