Thank you! It’s called a Julia butterfly, and I think you have them in the South of the U.S. 🙂 The one in this picture is a female, she has a dark rim on her wings and she’s lighter orange than the males.

I was in the garden today, and they fly by so quickly I can barely see the butterflies, wasps and bees. Then I come in and find you’ve a photoraph so splendid that you can actually see the expression on its face! You certainly have a wonderful technique for photographing these beautiful creatures.

What a fantastic comment, you’re so kind! 🙂 Honestly, it’s 10% technique and 90% luck. I’ve seen so many butterflies this summer, but most of them won’t sit still long enough for me to take a picture..

Beautiful & inspiring! One of my goals is to capture butterflies on my camera. So far I have only caught one & it was blurry… Your photos are awesome!! ~ Wendy

I used Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

Bugs, beetle, and butterflies! I love them too! This is a great shot, Calee (is this correct?)!! Timing was great as everything about it is sharp. Thanks, too, for liking one of my recent posts “Live red rubies…”; I still don’t know what they are.

Thanks so much!! I think the Orange Longwing is one of the most “photogenic” butterflies I’ve seen so far. But it’s really difficult (for me) to get the eyes sharp. The only pictures I have where they eyes are in focus, the rest of the body is a bit blurry.. Well, anyway, thanks for liking it!!
