......Or Rotated?

Version 1 was how the butterfly (a Tiger Longwing - although this butterfly has three names) was resting on the nettles. I know some folk like to keep to their 'As Taken' shots, but I wondered if rotating it 90 deg clockwise would give an improved view (version 2).

I'd like to hear your preference! Smile

Top shot!
Both terrific - maybe the rotated version for me as it draws attention to the delicate legs.
I hope you took some more of these, Karen.

I like V1 as the leaves are the right way up, and V2 because we can see the butterfly better. But a super shot whatever way round. So clear. Smile
