[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was fortunate to capture this shot showing three different types of butterflies on the same cluster of blooms while in Nicaragua.

The largest butterfly (Top Right) is a Variegated Fritillary. The yellow butterfly (Top Left) I believe is a type of Sulphur and the one in the middle is an Elf Butterfly.

The trio didn't stay perched together for long, so I was thrilled to capture them all in the same frame. This particular day was rather hot and muggy, although the Butterflies didn't seem to mind the heat a bit.

Hello Ron,

Great capture of the 'Three Amigos'. I've seen three different species in the same 'vicinity' on more than a few occasions .... but never ever nectaring on the same flower! Great timing for such an impressive well focused composition and with beautiful light & saturated colors as well.



Hello Ron,
Wonderful composition with all three different species of butterfly on a beautiful bunch of Kalanchoe(probably)flowers.Nice details and beautiful colours,TFS.

Wow! Almost Blinding in Color! Great job on capturing not one, not two, but THREE Butterflies!

Ciao Ron, fantastic trio on beautiful flower, great macro, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Gem of a picture showcasing three different species from Nicaragua, Ron. You indeed were lucky to get a life-time shot like that.
All the three butterflies look beautiful in their own ways and all of them are in clear focus.
Very well done and thanks!

Wow, what a bonanza, Ron!
How amazing that you caught these three different species of butterflies on one clump of flowers. They were definitely very cooperative in their positioning to allow three clear views in different poses!
Great details and colors! TFS!
