What an excellent shot of this predominantly white butterfly yet with plenty fine detail retained: love it's chosen 'perch', Fred.
And an excellent piece of artistic manipulation in V 2, symmetry achieved both on the horizontal and vertical dimensions.

Love both Fred, excellent detail, very good dark background makes the insect stand out, like the V2 version also.
