1st one is excellent but the 2nd one is even better. I like the way the wood flows around the water which mimics the shape of the butterfly.

Two amazing shots - the crop in V1 focuses on the butterfly against that wonderfully textured wood.

Aw! Great capture - I like V2 more. V1 shows the butterfly nicely, but the composition in V2 is terrific. This, as a large print would do good to many a wall!

Gorgeous detail and colour in your butterfly. Love the wonderful swirling texture of its "perch". 2 excellent images.

The butterfly looks good on the wood. My favourite is V2 but I wonder if your original is big enough to slightly put the butterfly on an angle?
