BUTTERFLY

Not much to say on this. I was just looking for something colorful to shoot. This fit the bill.
Brilliant capture! The frame around the photo is perfect!

That's great, you can see it's little face! I guess I should have put a close up of my butterfly, no love was given to it. I Liked the foilage in the shot. Loving the purple foilage in yours too :)

Super processing...the colours are gorgeous together!

You did find something colourful. I just have boring brown moths :(

@ozziehoffy @trude -- LOL! Well, I don't mind including a flower if it adds a splash of color to the subject I'm REALLY interested in shooting.
posted May 26th, 2012  
Nice colours and composition!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Really like the color of the flower and matching frame...nice a colorful.

@trude @cromwell hahah I didn't see your comment, Trude!! I know, right?? And now, he's making excuses... I think he secretly really likes them though... teehee.
posted May 26th, 2012  
@ozziehoffy @trude -- I'd secretly like to ban all flower pictures from the 365...oh, and I'd adding a ban on mirror shots now too! ;-P
posted May 26th, 2012  
@cromwell HAHAHAH ... I didn't just upload any flowers.... seriously, they're not flowers!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Keeping an eye on you, is what it's doing, brilliant capture
posted May 26th, 2012  
Lovely, like the flowers too ;)
posted May 26th, 2012  
what do you have against flowers? :) great shot!

Oh, Cromwell! You would condemn half of us from the site!! Nice butterfly and colors (ignoring the unmentionables).

@rocketdog @ozziehoffy -- I have nothing against flowers. They are beautiful. I just think seeing a hundred or more flower shots everyday on the 365 is redundant. I also think it's lazy photography. The photographers I admire the most here are the one who go out and shoot something original, not something everybody with a camera is going to shoot. Hey, if you see a fantastic looking exotic flower, by all means, shoot it. Never walk way from a potential great shot is my motto...but, I can honestly say that 95% of the flower shots I see on the 365 are "BOR- ING!"

I love the expression on its face! Totally makes this one different...
posted May 26th, 2012  
PS - I'm trying really hard to be kind, and I do think the occasional flower shot is lovely, but I also feel like I've seen one too many and am at a loss for anything original to say about them...

@northy -- I hear ya sister! My appologies to those I follow, but I no longer comment on ANY flower shots. I post comments from the gut. Whatever my first thought or reaction is to a photo I view. Sorry, but the only reaction I get from viewing another flower shot in an seemingly endless line of flower shots is "Ugh!" I'm certain the photographer doesn't want to hear that kind of opinion from me, so I shut up and move on. LOL!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Love the shot love the face on the butterfly and the colors are pretty
posted May 26th, 2012  
Wow! Fantastic shot, Cromwell! Such great details and focus! Outstanding work, guy!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Great shot, lovely colours looks like he's about to take-off :)
posted May 26th, 2012  
Great shot Cromwell! I love the pink flowers! It really makes the picture, pop!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Beautiful colors! Looks like you just caught him before he flew off!
posted May 26th, 2012  
Gorgeous capture! I love the pov! Were we taking pictures at the same place ;-)
posted May 26th, 2012  
WOW!.....FAV! : )
posted May 26th, 2012  
@allisonrap -- Same place as where? When I want a shot of a butterfly I just go wherever the flowers are. Bingo! :-)
posted May 26th, 2012  
@annbo -- Why, thank you for the FAV, Ann. :-)
posted May 26th, 2012  
Wonderful pov and beautiful colors!
posted May 27th, 2012  
I really like how you got under the butterfly for your shoot!
posted May 27th, 2012  
Super detail of his underside!
posted May 27th, 2012  
Lovely colour and vibrancy
I'm so with you on the flower thing :)
posted May 27th, 2012  
love how sharp the butterfly is against the background. The colour of the frame and the flowers matches up beautifully. Really nice shot.
posted May 27th, 2012  
sorry, forget to mention that I fav'd it :))
posted May 27th, 2012  
@sabine -- Thanks for the FAV Sabine! :-)
posted May 27th, 2012  
Great pose - love the line of his wings.
Sorry for all the flower shots I posted this week... I put an apology to you on one of the first but would guess you didn't read that far. I love them and enjoyed the challenge of doing crisp macros and presenting them differently - I actually deliberated about doing them because I know you don't like them, (!!) but reconciled that you can't please all the people all the time :)
posted May 27th, 2012  
ugh - a flower shot! Nice butterfly though ;)
posted May 27th, 2012  
wonderful macro Cromwell!
posted May 27th, 2012  
@filsie65 -- That's hysterical. You made me laugh so hard. I still love you, Phil (even if you torment me with flower shots). Oh, and I was generalizing not singling you out. When I see a flower shot I just skip by them and don't even notice who posted it. Sorry I missed you personal warning to me. :-D
posted May 27th, 2012  
@cromwell I still love you too Hunny! :)
England only gets flowers a few months of the year which I guess is perhaps why we all go potty. Ok pottier.
posted May 27th, 2012  
Looks like a colored C3 about to go airborne. Nice coloring.
posted May 27th, 2012  
Wow, look at the face on that thing! Awesome!
posted May 28th, 2012  
I don't think I've ever seen the face of a butterfly like that -- awesome capture!
posted May 29th, 2012  
This is awesome, and I think you are really coming around to flowers!! You know you love taking pics of them deep down! It's ok I am on to you! =)
posted May 29th, 2012  
Excellent focus and composition. Well done!!!
