A great bokeh here, Jenn and the comp. is a wonderful classic layout with the butterfly on the vertical third line and the plant on the horizontal third line.
A beautiful shot all around.

How fashion conscious can a butterfly be? Chooses its resting place according to how well it matches itself.. Now that's what I call accessorising!Smile

Perfect composure and focusing courtesy of a very clever photographer...Wink

Gorgeous capture.
Such an attractive butterfly on the pretty purple flower.
Lovely soft focus b/g too.

My Buddleia is now in full flower, but have seen only
one butterfly on it so far. The weeks of rain have been so bad
for many of our creatures and crops.
Hope they make a late summer come-back.
