Another angle of one from yesterday

Talk about butterfly heaven :shock: #3 would make a nice 4x3 foot wall poster IMO. A great angle on the first butterfly and #2 is a beautiful butterfly collage :smt023

Regarding pic #3. I don't know how I didn't notice it at first, but there is death under all that beauty. If you look closely, you will see that the butterflies are actually licking minerals off of a fish skeleton.

Actually I didn't, but could bet Rik did. However it is not easy to provoke Rik like before. :wink:

Fish? What fish?!

I'm sorry, I was distracted. Too busy considering the gender of the butterflies, I think... (Would you believe they're all male? :wink: )
