A lovely fresh female (no androconia on the hind wings).

Very nice capture!

I just took a closer look at this lovely photo, and it sure looks to me like this butterfly has a mostly uncurled proboscis.

Jody, did you happen to catch this one just taking off from a flower?

I think you might be right Rik. Judging by wings and body position I was thinking about landing or soar. Now I prefer soar. :D
Ohhhhh I fell in love with Sigma SD14! :smt058

I'm glad all you pros can figure out that this beautiful butterfly just took off. Very observant of you. Wonderful picture Jody. Great color, focus, and emotion.

oh DROOL! it's not clear from the website if that's a full frame sensor or not though. hrm, dig dig dig...

Nope, not full frame, 1.7X conversion factor http://dcresource.com/news/newsitem.php?id=3404

impressive set of features, particularly the 3 layer sensor. very nice.
