An excellent choice of F11 to capture the pair in sharp focus given the unusual angle they are at....Top Work and a superb image...Roll on spring!!
All the Best

An exquisite, well-timed macro capture David. This has to be viewed large to appreciate the truly incredible detail, plus beautiful natural colours and amazing textures of this pair of lovely butterflies.
