The large daisy plant in our garden is a haven for all types of butterfly. I have been photographing them in the early evening when the sun is casting great shadows.

Sorry Karl, but on the download IMHO it looks like the front part of the butterfly is not in focus.

I'm in - the splashes of color against the dark background, and the moment of takeoff... I love it.

It's a 10 from me Karl. Very difficult to get enough DOF on a f2.8 lens, especially @ 105mm but you have this spot on for me....
