Photos of the Week - Thumbnails

August 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I'm going to coin a new term in this post.
 

You see, I've been out shooting recently and have managed to capture some shots of really tiny butterflies. 
 

You know the ones.  They look like small dots of color flitting about the grass and flowers.  The ones around the size of your thumbnail.
 

But, there is no official term that I've been able to find for butterflies based on their size; only breed or type.
 

So, let me introduce you to some THUMBNAIL BUTTERFLIES.
 

I think what suprises me about these thumbnail butterflies (besides the fact that there isn't an official name for them) is that they can be as ornate as the larger ones.
