Thanks very much, Nadine, Sandra and Eileen!

Actually, Eileen, the butterfly is small compared to the whole cosmos ... I think the butterfly is about 1" head to wing-tip and the cosmos is about 4 1/2" wide (petal tip to petal tip) -- but the photo does make it look the other way around! :)

Colleen, I must admit that you handle the exposure like a professional. I wonít just praise your work on this as I really donít know where to start. LOL. But you know that I LOVE this.

Goodness, this is great detail. And you managed to color coordinate the skipper and the center of the cosmos to boot. :)
