    *is very very jealous of the first shot*
    very very jealous! flying butterfly - that beat flying dragonfly in my book = dragons hover, butterflies sort of wabble in the air - a lot - great shooting (though a bit more light maybe?)

    Got to say purple eyes is very stricking! Great fullbodied shots.

    I, too, am envious of #1. Capturing a butterfly in flight is very difficult. I've taken pics of a butterfly like in #5 and the eyes remind me of "soccer ball" eyes. These are nice photos. Thanks for sharing.

    yup, quite the lookers, arent they :)
    This one was wabbling around above a dead butterfly of the same species. It probably tried to scare it away, but as we all know, dead butterflies dont go anywhere fast. So the flying one just flew around at the same spot for a while, which gave me a chance to finally get a butterfly in flight shot. But it still was pretty difficult to get a good shot, since it still moves around alot. And yeah, its a bit dark. Thanks for the comment :)
    Thank you :D
    Thanks :)
    Yeah, they do look like soccerballs, i wanted to kick it when i saw it (j/k)
    Thanks for the compliment :)
    :thumbup:
    Thank you :)
