What a lovely pair to capture - super detail.
I would crop a little off the sides though to make the butterflies more prominent.Smile

You have captured these butterflies very well but I agree that a closer, portrait shot may have worked even better. I have done a mod that shows what I mean but the image may not be able to cope with such a strong crop. It is always better to fill the frame at taking stage if you can. Andy

Well caught though a vertical crop would make for a stronger image.
