* Free At Last *

By Rock
When opening the Summer House I found this Butterfly on the floor with it's wings open and it could have been there for a few days,so I lifted very gently onto a stiff card and took it out to the nearest flower and placed it on the dalia.
It was a warm day and it stayed in the same position for a while and then fluttered off, so I like to think it was alright.

Please enjoy both versions.

It certainly looks fit and healthy Rob, the colours and details are glorious in v1, you may even see this specimen again next spring if it finds somewhere suitable to hibernate and surivives the winter
