I find the markings on butterflies so amazing, this one is gorgeous JM. Looks great on the bright green background.

I know so little about these things, but I wonder if this isn't a pretty moth? Those dots on the end of his wings look like eyes...

Can't see a lot of differences, almost perfect symmetry!

VP said...

When one says the perfect photo... Bravo!

Margaret said...

Very nice contrast. Both the leaves and the butterfly look so healthy!

This is sooo nice!

JM, I've found a detoriation in the quality of photos on my blog too. A fuzziness. One thing I've been doing is going into the HTML of every photo I post and either changing the size or deleting one of the sizes. So at the end of all the HTML stuff you'll see /s400/ (the number may be different depending on the size of the image). (This is listed twice in the sequence) I've been deleting the last one out (unless I'm changing the size of the image, then I make both the same number). I don't know if this makes sense or will help you in any way. If you need me to explain better, just let me know, I'm happy to help, but not at all that literate in computer lingo!

That just took my breath away! You have such a great variety on your blog -- it's like a surprise gift every time and I love that.

This is a fantastic image!

Jacob said...

Great title that says it all. I also like the way the light hits the butterfly - looks like little lights on its wings!

Andrew said...

Wow! I nearly missed this one.
I am so glad I didn't it's a beauty

Thanks for your concern about what has happened here in Norway..... Good to know that many people outside our little country feel the same way as us about this evil act.

We have bought a tree this summer, called "Butterfly tree". One day I hope to see some butterflies :)
