very delicate snap ; I wonder if the best is the pastel color of the wings, of an absolute smoothness (it gives me a gentle waking up today before going to work, thank you !), or the antenna perfectly standing out against the orange soft focus of the flower...
armagnac - thank-you for noticing the antenna! That's why I chose this shot over a few others where the other antenna was more in focus, but I thought I was just being fussy! I just wish I understood how to use the macro function better. This guy must have still been asleep, and I could have gotten even closer views of his face. Thanks!
you bet he was asleep ! according to me he was enjoying being the star of the session, and must have been disappointed when you eventualy left. you should post a detail of it, full size, so that we can see him smiling !
armagnac - perhaps you're right! He did seem to be just sitting there waiting for me. Perhaps he'd heard how famous his father has become, and wanted his own 15 minutes of internet glory! :-)
Here's a 3D of this butterfly!
The double photos taken a short distance apart that are posted by many users here on Panoramio allow the subject to be viewed as a 3-D object without the use of any special equipment at all except 2 eyes! Here's a link to explain how to view stereo-pairs in 3D, and a link to a discussion thread in the forum related to 3D photography. In sorting through photos today, I realized this originally posted butterfly shot and the one just earlier worked quite well for a detailed and rather startling 3-D. Cheers to you all.

thanks very much, luca! The butterflies haven't been as willing to pose this summer. They seem to be being constantly on the move, so no new shots this year, and I'm glad for these from last summer! Greetings to the Capitoline Hill at night.
