What a lovely image Albert !! If the butterfly is so pretty with its wings closed it must be a sight with open wings !! Lovely sharp image !!

Still very beautiful, Albert, and well captured with his proboscis extended deep into the flower. Carol

Rare to see this butterfly with its wings folded, so different from the upperside.
