Was helping Chrissy do some clean up in the garden when I spotted this Gulf Fritillary cavorting on some lantana and rescuing me from yard work (photography is priority #1 :wink:). Had to do some contortions to get it in the frame and even then I probably trashed 40-50 shots. So it goes. All comments welcome. >=))>

Simply beautiful in every way, Bill. Love the contrast of colors. :+1: :+1:

Bill, the BF and the flowers stand out here beautifully here. The soft green of the leaves makes a fine background.


This one was worth the trouble. The colors are crisp and bright and the diagonal element of the comp works well to lead the eye up to the butterfly…Jim

Bill …you cant get cleaner and sharper than that. The color scheme across the frame is what i love the most.
