I was really pleased with the composition of this shot, had to wait quite a while for the Butterfly to get into the right position and even though the poor thing has deformed wings on the right, I still like the overall effect of the shot.
Natural World Beauty is still there despite Imperfections.

Thank you for looking.

Nicely done Phil,I like the dof you have used here,just enough to soften the bottom of the stem.

I agree - we have to photograph it as it is - not perfect but still beautiful. Great shot.
