    On my recent visit to the Albuquerque Botanic Gardens, the flambeau (The Flame) butterflies also referred to as julia butterflies with their bright orange colors were a very compelling subject as several of my recent gallery entries will attest.

    Joe your butterflies do look like they can fly in the slideshow mode. They are gorgeous. Maybe it's that incredibly fast shutter speed that I'm looking at. Seriously they are stunning.

    I have certainly enjoyed catching up with your gallery, Joe!  What stunning photos!  This butterfly looks 3D as if it could fly right off the page.  Gorgeous shot!
