I didn't know whether post this photo here or Closeup forum (maybe post in both?)

Anyway, I spent at least 10 mins chasing this butterfly round my garden and gave up when it flew next door, My attention was then drawn to some honey bees hovering around some flowers. So I got on all fours with FZ30 fitted with MCON 40 lens in hand and started taking photos of the bees in flight (Man they're quick),

When I looked round there was this Butterfly about 1 foot away , He obviously got jealous with the attention I was giving to the bees instead of him and came back for a look!

What do you think??
