Very beautiful closeup with amazing colour and detail Heather. The water droplets bring ones eye up to the very pretty butterfly. Love this shot.

Heather Mellon

Thank you, Debra. This rose is such a rich color and the rain always seems to bring out the best in it. It's hard to wrong when you have one like this to work with.

Harold Fleming

I like that you backed up a bit for this one to take in the full flower, Heather. The water droplets along with nice lighting certainly make the flower sparkle and accentuate the black butterfly. The spots on the butterfly are a nice match for the centre of the flower.

Thank you, Harold. I like the color coordination too and it was really nice to get a good view of this elusive little butterfly on one of my favorite roses at the same time.

Yves Langlois

Great compo whith the black and rose. colors. Never saw that butterfly before. Like its minimalist design. Droplets in the foreground and the light on the border of some petals surrounding the subject adds to the pleasant image.

Heather Mellon

Thank you, Yves. They're fairly common in this region although I generally only see a few each summer. They're flighty and don't settle on anything for long so I felt lucky to get this shot.
