Congratulations, Mr Flossman! Diardi Capeta is the most beautiful.

Congrats, Lemon - you've got them all FLOS! I know you are very pleased! :dance: I'm still after the Plain one, hopefully it will fly in my line of sight one of the days that I visit USR..... :whistle:

Hi Lemon,
Thought I'd share my pixs of the Flos... thanks to your helpful spotting and id-ing I've got 3 of them! I saw the Bifid once before, but it is always good to see it another time as it is such a beautiful butterfly! Hope I will get the Plain Plushblue next week - some think that is the rarest?? Cheers!

Thanks,Lemon. Frankly, I found it quite difficult to figure out how strong the flash should be and the depth of field to apply when shooting the Flos. :pdr: I think all the pixs taken of the Flos are interesting because these butterflies have such unusual wing patterning and coloration. It is fascinating to note that we've all got slightly different takes of the same butterflies - slight shifts in the sun's lighting, positioning of the butterfly, exposure calibration, reflection from the surrounding area etc and lo! the butterflies have their 'own' look at that point of time! :thumbsup:
