Not my best...not a macro...not even taken with my "good" camera.
But, I like it anyway.

Thank you loeee

I was at the zoo with my kids and these flowers were just out on the grounds and I started chasing these butterflies. My boys got a kick out of that!

Looks like a female Chequered Blue Scolitantides orion. Look at this site Scolitantides orion

Was the underside like this?

All the best

What camera did you use... and what is your 'good' camera?

That's a seriously nice fritillary shot - I know how nervous they are.

All the best

Thanks for the comment. They were gorging themselves on those Echinacea, so I
had a little time to get positioned.
This was shot with an Olympus 400D p&s- only 3.2MP.
I am now using an Olympus E510, have had it for about one year, and am already twitching for an upgrade.

I've always liked this one, from my little Olympus C2100UZ.

I did not see the underside of this butterfly, but the top is defiantly right, thank you.
