I think there's a competition going on here, Fred, between which can be the most colourful, the Butterfly, or the Flower..!
Is there a tiny little dust spot, just above the flower?
It detracts from what is otherwise the most wonderfully coloured image I have seen so far today.
Nature at its stunning best...Smile

Another stunner Fred...I am just a little envious of all your glorious butterflies, whilst I have a little white thing that flitters around my yard impersonating a butterfly ! Grin

They are Nigel, Simon thought there was a dust spot on V1, I think it's a mark on the leaf but I cloned it out,
