Maybe this will make sweet_melisa feel better, those kinda dings seem like they feel worse, throb the next day.

First photo is with a flash, second is just natural light.

Gasp! You really outdid yourself, Ron - these pictures are to die for!
American ladies have one of the most beautiful undersides in the butterfly world, in my opinion, and that first picture captures it exquisitely! The second picture really shows off the beautiful yellow of the sunflower!
I got a picture of one on a coneflower about a week ago - mine isn't as good as yours, but I'll post it anyway -

I released the last of my first bunch today, and I've brought in about 6 or 7 more to raise to release.
Thanks for sharing your pictures!
