Oh you have taken a wonderful photo here Flcrazy, look at the light coming through even through the wings, nature is marvellous isn't it?

Yes it is Janey, and I feel so blessed to occasionally have chances to experience it firsthand.

A lovely picture. Did you use a zoom lens? I need to check out your tree. How large does it get? I wonder if it grows in zone 5. We live in upstate NY.

Yes Readybyhepond, this is with a zoom lens. Wish I could tell you it would grow for you, but sadly it's only hardy to zone 7. I don't know max hieght at maturity for this species, but mine is about 17 feet tall.

Great lighting- a perfect shot. Butterflies are sadly lacking in my garden.

Thanks Gg, I give all the credit to the early morning sunlight shining behind it's wings.The lighting made it look as if it was glowing...:-)
