Very beautiful, and harmonious. V1 works best for me, the balance of butterfly, rose and background.

Guess not many butterflies would recover after being at the bottom of a pool, but how beautiful the images are of her. Wondered what had happened to your usual crack-of-dawn posting and glad to learn you are well.

Unique eyes of V1,the POV of towering V4 & the well spread V5, of the moribund Butterfly, are excellent captures of the day, Carol.

They don't live long and this one looks faded -- A thoughtful rescue and some fine image as a result, so it will live long in the digital rhealm!

Version 1 doesn't show a faded, tatty Lady - I think that's why it's my favourite. Brilliantly caught, with lovely details!
