Simply love V1

Both are very good captures, but I'd go for the second shot as I find it better composed. Moreover, the background contrasts better in V2 than in V1 and that adds a little extra in my opinion. Well done.

I think I shall retire from Butterflies and Moths for this year, and leave them to the true pro's. Another highly professional image Ed, which simply blows my efforts away.
