Thanks Scott.

Clifford Dupuis

these colours are amazing, and the butterfly is still isolated. Well done

Debra Plett

Heather Mellon

Debra Plett

Thanks Heather it was a nice day to sit in the yard and just be lazy somI grabbed the camera.

Yves Langlois

Gorgeous colors and composition Debra. I am so happy to see that beautyful shot from you. No problem with the sharpness here. If you want to see the body of the butterfly, just lighten the photo with a simple picture viewer. It may work, may be not.

Debra Plett

Thanks for the advice Yves I will give it a shot. Your feedback is always appreciated.

I thought I would try getting a few shots of the Red Admiral Butterflies that very fuelling up on my flowers using my 200-600 lens handheld. It was a lot more difficult to focus on than I thought it would be. I might try using a tripod next time.
