    Default Male Scarce Silverstreak

    I was lucky to run into a tame male Scarce Silverstreak during my leaf run today. It was trying to open its wings to sunbath, but the cloudy sky was not allowing sufficient light to filter through, and hence the wings were only partially open. In the end, a half-cooked open-wing shot was the result.

    Congrats, Horace, on great shots. 'Half-cooked' shots, to me, are just as important as full-on upper or undersides, and are my favorites. I've been hoping to see a male sunbathe in an accessible location, as I need one for the website, but no luck, so far.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or one.

    Thanks, Les. I am glad you like it. I am sure with greater abundance of butterflies at your location, it will be easier for you to achieve your objective.

    The electric blue is really stunning! I've not got a shot of either of the gender. Great shot of it.

    Cheers!
