Butterfly with a Nicked Wing

By handlerstudio  
Shooting insects on flowers at the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that we belong to, I found this butterfly and only noticed the damaged wing when I got to look at the photo later. It did not seem to keep it from flying.

I expect a bird had a good peck at it or maybe a cat ! Two fine images even so.
