Default Aye Aye Skipper

Skipper on lantana cleaning it's tongue. I guess it's the butterfly equivalent of wiping your mouth after you drink.

Excellent! They are very cute up close, almost mammal like. Is this with your ring flash?

Yes Saly _ used the Metz Ring Flash. That way I can use ISO 100and even though the shutter speed is 160 it's usually more than enough freeze the image if it's moving.

Excellent shots Cole. They are some of the easier insects to "sneak up"on.
