Anybody know what this little butterfly is?

Hi, Gail! [wavey] It's Me< Thornius! Your butterfly is a Fritillary of some sort, possibly a Great-Spangled, Meadow, or Silver edged Fritillary. I could not find an EXACT match, but all of these are similar to your Butterfly. I used eNature.com to look at them.

I have TONS of Zinnias.....tons and tons of them! I just love them--for attracting butteflies, but also because they are great cut flowers and last a long time in a vase. Later on I'll go outside and take some pictures of them all---my pond is surrounded by them. [thumb]

I think he was posing there too! [Big Grin] [Wink] [thumb]

Beautiful pictures, folks...gotta love those flutterbyes. [Smile]

loz, next time you have an emergency "power down" with your digital, sometimes you can quickly swap the batteries to the opposite position in the camera and eke out a few more shots. Try it next time...doing that has saved me from pulling out my hair several times recently. lol!

Can I ask you how you take such perfect pictures like this? I am a new gardener and try to take pic's like this, but don't get close enough I think.

I'll try that next time! [thumb] [muggs] [thumb] I was close to pulling out my hair this morning! [Big Grin]

I think a lot of the pic quality has to do with the camera you have....I really like my sony camera....but I think we've all taken bum shots before. It's mostly camera quality and practice! [thumb] My camera goes almost everywhere with me. Never know when you'll spot a good picture!

Wrennie, gailo, who started this topic is one of my birding buddies on the birdersworld.com forum. She discovered this site on her own and started posting when I told her I was a member, too. We birders switch to butterflys, insects, dragonflies, and wildflower photography when birding gets slow, usually in the HOTTEST part of the Summer (RIGHT NOW!!!!!) [Big Grin]

Super pix all!!! Here's my contribution. Please notice I got a pleasing angle of the hose, too. [Big Grin] Don't you just hate when that happens? lol! At least there was also some nice shadow play to add interest. [Wink]

Wow, Rosie, that's a beautiful picture of the butterfly [clappy] and that's a nice hose, too! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] Geesh, I wish I had a camera with a good zoom lens so I could take some pictures of my butterflies. If I get too close they fly away! [Mad]

I got a picture of a tiger swallowtail I kind of like because of the plain dark background. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe someone's jeans. Just thought I'd share.
