    I captured this little guy while visiting the Butterfly House in St Louis. It appeared to me he was "patiently waiting" for lunch (or a friend). I was intrigued with his "soccer ball" eye. C/C welcome. Thanks for looking!

    Wow, was it your on-camera flash firing that defined his features this clearly? He seems to have reflector stripes on his wings!
    I don't often like the use of on-camera flash, but here it looks like it helped the photo quite a bit!
    Interesting DOF, too, the second antenna is all out of focus already but then the background is so "bland" ... second wing and second antenna almost look like shadows.

    I'm jealous that I didn't get one like this when I was there with you! Great work!

    I love butterflies and your capture is cool. Good job. First time I ever saw an eye so close up and personal. Cool........
