Another butterfly from Butterfly Creek. I don't know the name of this one either. Un fortunately Butterfly Creek was light on information about the assorted varieties they have, therefore making it difficult obtaining information. I am disappointed that I have chopped off the ends of both wings and that there is a reflection from the sun on the metal pipe from the handrail, but I hope it is not too distracting and that you enjoy this shot. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Your captured his face so nice and clear Pam. When you think how small they are, this is great. Such unusual front legs too - you could call them bandy! This is good. Well done.

Good capture of this little chap, it's definitely not easy to hit the head on such a small one, but you managed very well ;-))
DOF is limited, but it looks as if you didn't have much light to play with, so probably the best in the circumstances.
For ID try looking up the fritillary species of your area, it looks as if it might be one of those.

Nice composition and interesting POV. I know how hard is to have sharp eyes, but this is the only thing not really perfect. Still the picture which I like a lot.
