Default Ladybugs For Eyes

I have never scene this type butterfly before. There where hundreds of them around a creek where there was also millions of swarming ladybugs. Makes you wonder.

Beautiful specimen of a very attractive butterfly! Great colours and sharp!

I love butterflies, and can appreciate how hard some of them are to capture well! So I congratulate you.

The only improvement to the photo I can think of is to remove that twig in front of it - but that likely would have scared it away.

Regards

Paul
