I think the flower is a black-eyed susan. This was a very cooperative butterfly.

Fantastic Steve,

How did you get them to stay still long enough to get the shot?? The ones around here are so quick, and they never land were you have the camera setup and waiting:angry:

Uh oh! :O

Now, I have to let the secret out.** I was visiting a butterfly exhibit and there were about 10 different varieties of butterfly.* If you just waited a few seconds they would stop by and give you a chance at several bursts before moving off.* Then the next one would wander in.* These were all taken, hand held with a Nikon D80, Sigma 150mm f/2.8 Macro w/flash.
Thanks for outing me.:lol:

Steve
