Amazing shot BH. You're a dab hand with that camera and are posting some wonderful pics....this being one of them:o))

You're very kind, Oddbillie. I delete far more than I keep ... so it's more a matter of "keep on shooting and eventually you'll get something good" than being a dab hand. More luck than talent.

Where I live Bernieh, I see a lot of white butterfly. Do get the occasional coloured one but not to often LOL

Hi Shinobi ... we're so lucky to be able to see many different types of butterflies here. Just wish they would all stay still long enough for me to get lots of photos!

Hi Bernieh, I think your weather is nicer than ours, maybe thats why you have all these lovely visitors LOL

Sorry for not getting back sooner BH. I know what you mean about the joys of digital photography....keep snapping and delete the bad uns!!!!

It's worth it though when you get shots like this one:o))
