Your statement really makes me smile! It is so nice to have found people like you, Linrose, on this fabulous forum!

I found this flying around. Gorgeous butterfly. I'd like to submit one to the photo contest. Which one is the best?

Equilibrium,

It is the *same* butterfly in each photo--how can it be better than itself!?!



Seriously though, I really can't decide...but, for some reason I'm leaning toward the second/middle one...for what it is worth.

It is a beautiful butterfly--but aren't they all? (or at least most of them =) )

Good call Dapjwy, I think you might be on to something. It looks to me like a worn-out Pearly Eyes (Enodia anthedon). Maybe a bleary eyes?

Ya know, you could be right too, swamp thing. ~smile~

I was waiting for someone to tell me it was a *moth*...then I'd really feel dumb.

"bleary eyes" LOL! =)

The first one kinda looks like a Question Mark to me, but I don't know much about these things. Anyway, I'd say #3 is best.

I was torn between #2 and #3...I just went back and flashed back and forth between the two...I am not exactly sure why, but I'm still leaning toward #2--I think it is a slightly better angle.

I think you are right about it being a Question Mark, but I don't know much about these things either. I do know I like "?" butterflies. (boy am I lazy)

We're all so smart!!! We all knew they were flutterbies. I'm pretty sure the first one is a Question Mark. It was the second one I kept looking at wondering what it was and I was too lazy to go get my book to look it up so thanks!!! Somebody needs to flip a coin on whether I add the 2nd photo or the 3rd photo or we need a tie breaker.
