This is superb, Sylvia, imo better than yesterday's. And what a wonderful flower it is clinging to, very colour co-ordinated! Carol

Excellent shot of this most attractive butterfly (and it's exotic 'perch'), Sylvia. Very nicely done.

An absolutely delightful shot Sylvia. Yesterdays was fine but this one is better. You have done well to catch it on that gorgeous flower.

I agree with the cloning suggestion Ken - had thought about doing that but thought it might be a bit laborious Wink Its up for mods though, so please have a go if you have a moment - would love to see the result Smile

Superb! Definitely the best of the butterflies you've uploaded so far. The extra depth of field from the narrower aperture really pays off.
