Beautiful capture Colleen, they are such small flowers for such a large bug. #4862560

Colleen Farrell level-classic 9/29/2007 7:49:40 PM

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! :) #4862736

Nikki McDonald level-classic 9/29/2007 8:14:49 PM

Beautiful detail on the butterfly and the cosmos center and foreground petals, Colleen. I love the angle of presentation, too. #4862838
