Fantastic! Love the wing span. I am hoping to visit a butterfly garden soon. The little creatures are so much fun to capture!

very nice macro, Ron! it's not easy to get those guys to pose for you, but the reward looks to have been worth the effort. beautiful colors and detail.

Terrific and the clarity is amazing. I also like the dappled light on the leaves, too, which in some ways matches the patterns on the wings. Nice work.

Great photo - the colors and details wonderful. It looks similar (but not exact) to a butterfly I photographed in Niagara and posted here.
