Kim, you sound like me! I love panaramio for this! Thank you for your visit and your very kind words!
This beautiful butterfly is on 'point' like an elegant,poised ballet dancer! Magnificent shot. I can't wait until I ever get a camera like yours, but then I still have to grow the talent to capture such a shot too!
In the meantime, I am giving this a Y*so I can look at it often.
Very best wishes from Oz,
I hope you enjoy your new camera - if you enjoy it even a tenth as much as I have enjoyed this one, you will be having the time of your life!
This photo was taken on a special day. The butterflies were gathered and calm. I had only ever heard of this before this day and was ecstatic when we happened upon it! It was a very special day that I will always remember. It was a magic day!
Thanks again for your many wonderful conversations!!!
Alfred, thank you! They were gathered and sunning and difficult to get them to move away. It was a great experience and very odd to me! Usually butterflies always fly away!
