And they are back flying in NZ now too ManYee. I have bought six small Swan Plants and I can't allow too many caterpillars on them as there won't be enough leaves for them all.
Very good shot of the butterfly - excellent sharpness and we can see all its details so well.

Very good macro of the monarch. The flash may be slightly hot, but the details are excellent. Your note is informative as always - I learned a lot from it, even though I have posted several monarch shots with notes. Thanks for sharing this.

Wonderful close-up shot of this beautiful Monarch butterfly with immaculate sharpness and lovely colours. The spotlight effect on its eyes is so creative well handled. I like the natural setting and its classical pose. Very nicely composed.

It's a great closeup POV & comp ManYee, sharp detail where it counts.
Difficult light & shadow mix to expose, but you've managed it well.
Good BG separation also :)
Well done & Happy Thanksgiving!

A fine close-up of a Monarch showing the head, thorax and base of the wings in fine detail against a natural OOF contrasting BG.
These are wonderful butterflies that a joy to see in real life but failing that photo such as this is a compensation!
