How'd you get it to sit still? Most of the time, those suckers don't even land. Cool shot.

The thing would land and I'd go for the shot, just as I got it all lined up, it would fly away. This went on for too long, finally I gave up and began to move on. At that point the little sucker landed and posed for five minutes :D

...the little sucker...

Hehe - that's my thinking whenever I am hunting these little guys. Very nice macro, michaelaw!

Great patience and a great result. Chasing those things around can be a pain in the *ss that's for sure. :wall-an:

That one is a beauty MAW... and a great capture of it. I love the checkerboard eyes.
Funny I saw another shot on flickr and my brain started wondering what was the diff b/w a moth and butterfly...I never knew until now. :)

Very nice! I love the depth of field in this shot which brings out the sharpness of the butterfly
