Great work!
But i can't work out if your shadow in the shot effects the photo?
Thinking about it Blue, it helps to take the shot to a higher level.
Your eyes are drawn from the base of the shot to the light hitting the grass, then lighting up the fine detail of butterfly, your eyes then follow the light to the tip of the golden grass. Perfect!Smile

A fine capture, Pete. The summer certainly hasn't disappeared here, but the butterflies have Sad Carol
