Thanks everyone so much for the kind words, I appreciate them all so much. Laura it didn't just land on the Cosmos, me saying I've been awol lately because of planting was a ruse. Actually I've spent the last few weeks training this particular butterfly to land on this particular flower. Ta Da!! lol. How's that for talent lol.
Have a fantastic weekend everybody and get in some winners. :) Tommy

Thanks everyone so much for the wonderful comments them mean a great deal to me. I live in South Central Missouri Marilyn. I took a chance and seeded about 10 days before our last projected frost date and lucked out. There aren't many blooming yet. $ right now and a couple buds that should be open in the next day or so. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and having a wonderful time capturing future winners. :) Tommy

Leave it to Maria G to know the exact name of this beauty, Tommy! She knows her butterflies! A truly beautiful capture - the golden tones of the butterfly against the lush pink of the cosmos is just outstanding. Superbly done, aesthetically and technically!

Thanks everyone so much for the kind words, I appreciate them all very much. Thank you Maria. I have manuals on regional birds, flowers and shrubs but nothing on butterflies. I really like the fact photography gives you the chance to not only enjoy things bit learn as you go as well. I hope everyone has a fantastic week and happy shooting. :) Tommy
