Fine shot again Graham. I really like it, but would have cropped it a little bit closer to the butterfly. Great macro.

Default Great shot!

This is a wonderful shot. The way the butterfly mimics the eye of a predator...am I right? It's beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

Glad you like. You're correct about the eyes. This is potential prey pretending to look like a predator.

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the answer. I've never seen an example of such up close.

Thanks for sharing!
