What a stunning image, Margaret. The angle of the plant mimics the angle of the butterfly, the dof is perfect, the detail is flawless and the colours are vibrant. There is a lovely sheen on the wings. Absolutely full marks!

Thank you CB, this one spent a long time feeding without flitting off so was relatively easy to shoot :o)
