This was taken at the Homasassa Butterfly Farm in Homosassa, Florida yesterday.

I used my Canon 100mm Macro Lens with a small aperture setting to obtain as much detail as possible.

Great job, Melissa! These aren't the most colorful of butterflies, but the way you've captured it over the contrasting green leaves really shows it off to perfection! Outstanding composition and details!

This is truly a stunning image, Melissa! Congatulations on a well-deserved finalist! When I went shooting butterflies and dragonflies two weeks ago, I learned how difficult it can be. Plus, we had a stiff wind, but it was a great learning experience, and makes me appreciate this fine image all the more. - Bill
