Butterflies: Peacocks of the Insect World
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us beautiful butterflies, Order Lepidoptera. They are the flamboyant members of the insect world. They (generally) hold their resting wings upright. (Moths are more modest in appearance than butterflies, and hold their resting wings flat. They had their own challenge recently, so any moths which flutter into the challenge will be DQ'd.) Show us butterflies alive and outside in their natural environment, on leaves, flowers, trees, just doing what comes naturally to them, not inside under artificial conditions. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Check http://bugguide.net/node/view/57/bgpage for more information on butterflies. Size: MAXIMUM 1,600px on LONGER SIDE.
