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
