Seems to merge effortlessly with the b/g and perch colours, Ed......it's a wonder you saw it.
Great shot, beautifully detailed.

Hi Ed, you must have eyes like an hawk to spot this. Your knowledge of butterflies is obviously good, but I'm afraid your knowledge of plants may be a little off. Or I might be wrong here, but I'm sure that the butterfly is sat on a goosebury bush? The giveaway is the goosebury's below. Anyway, does it matter I ask myself, NO! Your image does and it's well taken. I've made some adjustments in Photoshop CS6, by using the new iris blur tool around the butterfly, which I think makes it stand out a little more. I also made adjustments to highlights, shadows, cropping and clarity. I hope you like what I've done, but next time, pick the goosebury's!
