Great shots Penolta,
nr1 being my favorite, the other two shots of the same butterfly in the other thread are also the best imho.

Ronny, I agree on the Buckeyes - they sit quietly posing for you. Small fluttery plain yellow butterflies are not the best of subjects, but the species is one I wanted to document - two hours of waiting and watching any number of them and I never saw one sit with its wings open (they are famous for doing that). You take what you can get. Thanks for looking at both threads and commenting.

Very nice. I have gone to one of the butterfly places in MA and it is hard to get them. We were having a private tour and it was still hard to get them. Even though there are plenty there, you have to be in the right place at the right time just like in the wild. The room is very humid and like someone said, I couldn't wait to get out of the space. But, it was pretty.

Thank you, Patty. It looks like you were in the right place at the right time when you visited yours, too.

Great series of some lovely leps! It amazes me how many species are common here as well as there. Buckeyes are indeed great for posing - we get them in great numbers when the goldenrods bloom. Thanks for some fine, colorful, detailed and well-composed photos!
