Contest goal:

Everyone knows that the life of a butterfly is short.
Some of them live only one day !

Your task here will be to give them "a bit of eternity" by catching a picture of one (or more) of those beautiful butterflies. Moths are allowed also.

Of course your picture will be in color (No black and white allowed), and alive (not behind a glass pinched in a collection) !

Be creative as possible !

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

DigitalDreamer: These guys are not photography friendly that's for sure lol, and they like to tease you by flapping in front of you then darting to the side. I spent 2 hours stalking a butterfly but never got the shot I wanted lol :P Great shots coming in.
