This shot is MUCH better than the first, though I do wish the tops of the wings were more in focus. It's a lot prettier from this angle, but again the flowers are burned out, which takes away from the picture unfortunately. ^.^ Practice practice practice.

It's the Halloween spirit...it reminds me of Jack Skellington, with it's long,slender legs and white face.

Wow, such brilliant colours! I never would have guessed he'd be so colourful/spotty from seeing the previous photo! The contrast of the black butterfly on the green background is beautiful
