Lycaena dorcas

iso 800

This guy was a lifer for me, so I went to the RV and told my wife about it; we went out so she could see it, and no sooner did she get a look than an Ambush Bug nailed it!  Tried for some shots of him, (the Ambush Bug,) but he's tiny - about half of the diameter of the Shrubby Cinquefoil stamen clusters.  Even w/ a 1.4x and the 500D, I couldn't get anything that I'd share here.  I was happy with the color palette here, even if the light was pretty brutal.

Comments and suggestions always welcome.
Good light,
Craig

Excellent image of a gorgeous butterfly - I only know the species from field guides.

I love the colors. The composition is classic with great details.

So pleasing- the colors, as you say, are just lovely. Thanks for the story...too bad! But at least you got this memorable shot.
