Beautiful shot, M8t! Love how zooming blurs the background and isolates the subject, like my 35mm film camera's prime lens does. They (Monarchs) sure do a lot of damage for such pretty creatures.

hmm boyzo,

Even if I'd wanted to make any critics on your photo, they would be untrue. Because this photo couldn't have been better. Good focuspoint and excellent blurred background.

Would like butterfly's like those here in holland

This is quite a nice pic. Is it Monarch butterfly? Or Monark?

Nice shot, great detail. Just one thing, that is not a Monarch Butterfly! It is a Swallowtail, I think a Tiger Swallowtail to be exact. Does not diminish the quality and the beauty of the shot.

I think I agree with you GnomonMaster, because I just looked up pics of monarch butterflies, and they don't look like the one in this post. I then looked up tiger swallowtail .. and it's a good match.

Interesting, I was told there that it was a Monarch.
They are hard to capture the zoomaround and don't stay still for long.

Superb shot !!! but yes it is a Swallow tail for sure. Monarh's have orange coloured wings with black and red dots. The swallow tail you can tell bythose gorgeous after burners on the back of the wing.

Excellent work and shot over the pond. Its a cracker mate. Now print it out, it deserves it.

Danny.
