I'm glad these yellow cosmo flowers come back each year. They are a great attraction to butterflies.

Hi Paul,

You've capture this Vanessa virginiensis very nicely & in classic pose. The yellow flower is a perfect contrasting prop & well brought out against the light green bokeh.

I find when photographing this species that the more direct/intense the angle of the sunlight is upon this butterfly, the more the beautiful blue & mauve hues of the spot marks & outer bands of this species can be brought out.

A very well taken image!
