He’s a real beauty, Allen. Nice details throughout the BF. I think the square crop works right well for this image. I like the oof flower that mirrors the one the BF is on. I can’t think of anything to improve the shot.

Allen: Wonderful specimen on a terrific perch. I like the OOF flower in the BG as well. Really well done. >=))>

What wonderful detail and color on the butterfly! I almost want to subdue the BG to make him stand out more, but he holds his own.

Sharp all round and beautiful colours, Allen. I do like the way you have kept the slight wing damage - this makes it all the more natural, especially for this time of year.
