This is a bit different with the butterfly so deeply into the bell of the bloom, Jenn: fine colour recording and the detail is excellent (as ever).

Well if ever an image has raised the bar on the quality of Silly Sunday images, then this one certainly has to be a prime candidate, Jennn.
Don't find anything silly in a butterfly with its bum sticking out of a flower.Grin

The dark butterfly against the lily is a beautiful contrast, outlining its wing shapes, and the gold stamens running across the wing with the gold spots is really stunning. It's unusual to see an image of a butterfly with its head buried inside a flower, we seemed trained to show the head at all times, but there is something especially attractive about this image, Jenn, and it's almost like a painting.
