Gulf Fritillaries on a Thistle by *boron There are probably a gazillion Butterfly shots on DA, but this one I found really unique than the others that I have seen, often as we say in photography, it is "all about the light", and this shot shows exactly what and how the impact of shooting at the correct time of the day can play. I simply love the warm golden tone of light in this, and how it plays with enriching the oranges in the Butterfly wings. It really is just a gorgeous capture! ( Featured by kkart )

I've always tried to take a picture of a butterfly close up. Never really worked though. Beautiful shot. :D

I used a 300mm lens. Didn't have to get that close, though they were very calmer than usual that day.

Love the shot - such vibrant color - oh MY! The image is perfectly sharp - you gotta love that!!! And sooooo many butterflies on one flower - OMG!

Nit picky portion of the comment - love the central flower, the second gracing the upper right edge - not so much. Looks to me like editing this flower out would be "over the top" hard and it's too late to suggest retaking the picture with either a different angle or a wider angle....just a bit of composition nonsense.... ;)
