Come on there's room for two!!

By lobo_blanco  
Saw this lovely Tortoiseshell butterfly enjoying the sun and feeding on the nectar of the Cow Parsley flower, when a fly stopped and starting feeding as well. Both thoroughly enjoying themselves and completely unconcerned at my presence; for once!!

Very Good. However if I can make a suggestion, I personally would have used a slightly smaller aperture of perhaps of 1 f-stop more than here in order to bring the fly into slightly more focus. However having said that, this is a great image so very well done.
