Default Julia in the rain.

A Julia butterfly uses a tree as an umbrella during a rainstorm.

Beautiful image, our butterfly activity for this year looks to be a bit dismal.

G'day Steven

Beautiful - both the butterfly & your photographing of it
Colours, focus, exposure, highlights & shadows etc - it's all there in the right proportions

Well done
Regards, Phil

Very nice, butterflies have been rare around here the last couple of years. Lucky to see three or four Monarchs in July.

Very beautiful picture Steven!

Over here we still have autumn weather.
So no butterflies, bees, flys, or other insect that we can have in spring weather.
