Clouded Yellow 2

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and lovely comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Nicky (nickyv32) and David (dven) for their very generous user awards for which I am very grateful. I chased this clouded yellow for nearly three quarters of an hour! It was the only one I saw and I was quite pleased because it was a little windy. Have a good evening. Cathy

These are excellent, Cathy. V1 is my favourite, sharp, great detail, well composed good out of focus background with the out of focus flower at the top of the image adding to the composition framing the main subject. Also very complimentary colours and tones with the butterfly, flowers and background, all makes this a special image. V2 is not far behind with the spiny leaves complementing nicely the legs of the butterfly and the tone of the eye and leaves. V3 fine image but not quite in the same league for me.
