I found this rather unwell painted lady in the bottom of the pool today, and brought her indoors hoping that she would recover. I placed her on a rose that I had cut from the garden and took some pics of her, then left her to hopefully recover. Unfortunately, some hours later, I found she had passed away.
Apologies for the late upload and lack of clicks/comments, I awoke at 7am this morning to find that the electricity was off and only now (3pm) has it returned.

Very beautiful, and harmonious. V1 works best for me, the balance of butterfly, rose and background.

Guess not many butterflies would recover after being at the bottom of a pool, but how beautiful the images are of her. Wondered what had happened to your usual crack-of-dawn posting and glad to learn you are well.

Unique eyes of V1,the POV of towering V4 & the well spread V5, of the moribund Butterfly, are excellent captures of the day, Carol.
