An Atala butterfly, found naturally only in Southeast Florida. They are approximately 1" x 1" and are poisonous to those who would feed on them. They can actually be touched and even then are reluctant to fly away. Mid-afternoon, natural light, handheld, autofocus, autosettings, Canon 100mm macro lens.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
