Green Malachite – Camera Critters

green butterfly camouflage with fern
I almost didn’t see this little green malachite butterfly.  I was photographing an unfurling frond of this fern when my daughter pointed him out.   His camouflage blends in rather nicely.

Hi Adrienne,

Been without a computer....a bad virus. :( Lost everything, including my email addresses. Would you send me an email with your address? I hope you are well,

Hello little fluttery friend.
How cool! I wonder what kind this is and if it's found near me. I've never seen one in my area before.

The ferns are beautiful and the butterfly even more so.

What a beautiful photo, I like the whole setting! I think we sometimes crop too closely and miss out on the bigger picture...this is beautiful!
How pretty is that bokeh? : )

What a neat butterfly! I wonder what species it is, because I don't know that I've ever seen a green one before!
