Beautiful macro, a remarkable butterfly. So colorful Vicki! #1174484

Vicki L. Filippin 8/30/2009 3:00:22 PM

Thank you, Donna! It was the first one of the season I'd seen so far. We get flocks of them in the front yard on these plants every autumn. I didn't even bother grabbing the Canon for this shot; my Fuji is still my camera of choice for Macro. #7901464

Amanda D. Austwick level-classic 7/3/2010 7:29:30 AM

Vicki, this is such a beautiful butterfly with it's iridescent wings. A well deserved win!
One thing that I have noticed where I live in the past couple of years, is that there are a lot less butterflies, bees, and ants than there were 10 years ago when we moved here. The only thing that I can think of is the pesticides that the local farmers use. #8731853

Vicki L. Filippin 7/3/2010 7:55:00 AM

Thanks for the kind words, Amanda!
I think you might be right on the flying critters...not many fireflies, either. The daughter of a friend of mine recently told me that bees are very close to the endagered list. It's a scary thing. #8731908
