Beautiful tones and detail on this one Yves. The focus on the butterfly and flower are spot on and the other little guys we see make for an interesting image and tell a story.

Thank you Debra for your very appreciated comment. That flower is in its peek actualy I love to use it for the little straws that comes out around every little flower. The red admiral was a perfect match. And those wide spread flowers are aften crowded with many different insects for the chalenge of having the most possible on focus..

I like this shot just like you have captured it Yves. The focal point being the butterfly. You have captured the beauty of the flower and the life that depends on it. I would have thought that f13 would have put the bee in sharper focus though.

Most of the birds are now gone south. The end of my nature's photography season is near. But there is still some pretty nice shots to do with flowers and insects. The poor DOF at close range was the chalenge here to have the bee sharp focus too. The full sun allowed for a higher apperture so I pushed to F13. But it was not enough (F22 may be). The crowd include a fly and what look like a very bizard yellow insect in the middle of the bottom.
