One from Sunday morning. The Buddleia had several butterflies from several species, the only problem being that it was very breezy making it difficult to get a sharp picture.

Beautiful! I think version 1 is my favourite, but I'm not a fan of the frame (sorry, just a personal thing! Smile). I love the colours and details you've captured.

An excellent crop from the original, the colours and detail are wonderful (sorry, not a fan of the frame either but it's very subjective).

Lovely image, I do vastly prefer the version 2 though, like others who've mentioned it, I think the frame is detracting, being so heavy and obtrusive. I get some stick too over frames(g) it's not always easy to decide on a colour and width, unless you play safe and use black or white. Nice and sharp this pic, with great detail Smile
