Nice shot. Perhaps his eyes are somewhat reflecting some of the yellow in the flower.

Good close-up. Looks like some form of Clouded Yellow - an American variety?

Cool!

An outstanding shot, the yellow and green are fantastic together.

Very nice shot Mark. That's what I love so much about this focal length - it removes the distractions around the subject without being too close. The FOV opens up a whole new world.

Welcome again to 200mm...
Thank you Marc. This is one of the first shots using the sto-fen diffuser you recommended. Even though I didn't have the flash cord to get it off the camera, I think it helped fill in nicely. But obviously, (the shadow), the sun is supplying most of the light. I did get the flash cord, but due to a cold snap, insects have been in short supply.

I'm sorry I don't know what kind of Butterfly he is. However, he is not as yellow as he is transparent. I'll assume he's American... but I've heard Butterflys can migrate thousands of miles.

That may very well be. The reflections look almost like the petals of the flower... I think I can make out Zuzu's petals in there.... badaboom.
