it was a visual mess. Australian species is protected and almost extinct.

Well captured Steve - the detail and saturated color against the soft background is a knockout. It was a fun day!

Glad I saw this Steve! I didn't know what kind of butterfly it was, only that I was mesmerized by it and it seemed to "monopolize" most of my shots that day. Great shot, BTW; do you go to a butterfly museum to get your shots?
