  1. This may be Wordless Wednesday but there is no way someone can look at that photo and not say – spectacular! Applause for the photographer. 🙂

    Wow, Eliza! What a great shot!!! I love fritillaries. Really really wonderful capture.

      Thank you, Mary, it was so hungry, it was pretty easy to catch a shot of it. We’re blessed to have lots of fritillaries (because we have lots of violets, their host plant). Love that cycle! 😉

    gorgeous closeup. I wish the butterflies would be this patient with me! 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks! A hungry butterfly on a delectable flower makes a great subject! 😉 I’ve had better luck with shots taken early in the day rather than later. But butterflies are notorious flutterers, aren’t they? 🙂

      • W.H. SIM says:

        they are indeed … and even harder to photograph than hummingbirds! the hummingbird hawkmoth seems to visit our garden only in the evenings … so I’ve never managed to get a clear still of it. 😦
