Another in the Cloudless Sulphur series,

I was able to get alittle closer to this one even thought they move very fast.
I liked it because of the tight shot.

Info on the Cloudless is listed on my previous post.

Thanks for comments and suggestions:

Very nice detail and excellent light in this close-up. It is interesting how much the shade of orange/gold/yellow can vary in this butterfly.

(I guess I am out of points so I will return tomorrow).

Hello tabatha !
What a beautiful close-up on this butterfly ! I really like the eye of this insect. Excellent sharpness and details, beautiful vivid colors, wonderful composition and POV. The subject stands out nicely on the dark and blurred BG. There is some noise in the BG but it is still a fantastic picture. Very well done !
