You guys set the bar quite high. *sigh.....  :-\

Don't despair, it's mostly about patience... And it's less dangerous then some of the game in your part of the world !!! In fact those butterflies or spider or other insects pictures are done in a nice relaxing garden and it's my way to earn a "pastis" drink after all that effort... :-)

Great shot !

Quite common but difficult to approach.

Great shots Everyone  :)
Don't have a macro so I use the 80-400 and wait for them to land.

This one is neither a butterfly or a dragonfly.

It's a Neuroptera (which also includes lacewings and Ant lions)
