What a brilliant shot! Wing tip to wing tip, right down to the antennae (and the perfect background!). Wonderfully caught!

Both butterfly and it's perch are so well defined and showing up well against the dark green b/g: fine shot, Geoff.

Lovely capture Geoff- nice perch.Smile The bg looks a little bit smudged down the RH side - imho you could crop some off that side too.
