Like both Ed but V1 is pin sharp, these are not easy to photograph because of the butterfly and wind movement, nice one mate!

Remember - more is lessGrin
This Adonis is a gorgeous little fellow. Think V1 just gets the vote. One Adonis in the frame is enough.

I would just move him backwards a little out of center and closer to the frame. Otherwise it's perfection. TG
