Hi Brian
I see where you are coming from but just felt that as it was a full frame capture, composed in-camera, it sort of worked for me and it seemed a shame to crop it. Smile

That's fine Sylvia Smile - I only mentioned it because when I scrolled down to read your description the top of the image went off screen leaving less of the bg and I kind of liked where it placed the butterfly.
Personal preferences I suppose.

Your suggestion made me think Brian and I've uploaded a cropped version, which I think works well too Smile
