Macro Monday *Bronze Copper Side Profile*


So, when creating this post, I contacted one of my best buds to ask him what the proper name of this butterfly is. We talk every day. We often talk about the weather, we may have talked about extenze, but we talk about bugs and critters and photography a LOT! He always identifies my bugs for me, if I don't know what their proper names are. He asked if I had a shot of it with its wings open, and I said that, unfortunately, I didn't, but I did have another butterfly for him to identify when he was done with this one.

Well, he identified this butterfly as a Bronze Copper Butterfly. So, I went ahead and sent him the other photo I had to be identified. After I sent it to him, I googled Bronze Copper Butterfly and had to laugh out loud because I realized the 'other butterfly' I was asking him to identify was actually a Bronze Copper Butterfly with its wings open. LOL

You are a step ahead of me! I could not have identified the butterfly at all from either shot! Another great photo!
