Round Robins: Green

Sulphur Butterfly

In keeping with the Green theme for Round Robins Photo Challenge this week, I bring you a little sulphur butterfly with big, green eyes. (I seem to be into bugs these days, don't I?)

Our topic idea comes from Julie, of the blog Julie's Journal. Thanks, Julie, for a fun one!

You always find inspiration in nature. What perfectly green butterfly!

Actually, the wings are yellow on the top, but greenish on the underside. The eyes, though, look like little lime green pompons. I'd never seen one with eyes like that either.

That's a beautiful shot! I've never seen a green butterfly - which is too bad because they're gorgeous! Great job!

Wow--excellent resolution on such a little critter! Love the eye, and also the texture and highlights on those deep green leaves.

You must be a very patient photographer! Love the green buggy eyes!

What a cool shot! She blends in so well one could nearly miss her. Good eye!

Thanks, everyone! I was pretty pleased with this one too, and that's more than I can say for 99 percent of my shots. If only that grey stick were not in the foreground ... I tried to ease it out of there just after taking this one, but the motion made the 'fly fly off in alarm.
