Butterfly Portrait...


I was checking the mail on Friday when I spotted this butterfly sitting on my Rosemary Bush. I went inside to get my camera by chance that  it would still be there when I came back. I was lucky enough to fire off about 20 shots before it had enough and flew away. My first effort with butterfly and I'm quite thrilled with the result.

Beautiful shot, lucky you for it to sit still for a while. I love how the little white dots on the edge of its wings are repeated on the body at the front...who would have known!!
