86 - Environmental Portraits

I don't know what kind of butterfly this is, but it is the first green one I've ever seen. I thought it was just exquisite, with almost translucent wings (which don't really show up on the photo). A beautiful creature! (View full size to get a better look.)

"Have you ever seen a sunset in a perfect sky?
Or noticed the masterpiece we call a butterfly?
We are a witness to these miracles each day.
May it always be this way!"

--We Share the Earth by Mary Ann Kennedy, on her album The Road Less Travelled


  1. I don't remember a green one, either, but he looks great on a purple bloom.

  2. I have never seen a green one either - fabulous catch!

  3. Nice shot. Green is so weird for a butterfly. Beautiful.

  4. Great job with this one. I love butterflies, I used to chase them for hours when I was little.

  5. This is beautiful, Sunny, with great DOF.

  6. Lovely shot, Sunny. I like the pretty purple flower he perched on for you...
