It's perfect, Brian you couldn't have shot it better had it posed for you.
You could copy half this butterfly, paste and flip it and have the result you see here, perfectly symmetrical.

Thanks Mike, I was lucky this perfect specimen was very obliging with its pose.
May have to resort to your suggestion another day if I get 1 wing in and 1 wing out of focus.TongueTongueTongue

Cracking capture Brian, what a lovely specimen. Most of the ones that come in our garden look like they have been through a spin dryer!
