Thank you. He landed on my sidewalk outside my house, as it seems a lot of insects tend to do, and I decided that it was the best shot I was going to get. The interesting part, is that this was not taken in macro. I just zoomed in from 3 feet away to the max zoom before it hit digital zoom and this was the outcome.
I also have a B&W version of this with only the butterfly in color.

Wish insects also came by more often here, usually I must travel a little to even find a butterfly :/
This is really a nice shot, mainly because the colours of the butterfly itself are so strong in contrast to the rest, gives this work a good punch. Maybe you should upload the B&W aswell, it does sound very promising.
