Two splendid shots of this Brimstone who was thoughtful in choosing a colour coordinated plant to rest upon.

A beautiful butterfly and excellent images Ed. V1 for me as it shows the colours and the textures of the wing better.

Lovely images Ed.
Like #1 the best, with better exposure and wonderful colour tones in the image, which compliment the butterfly so well.

One of the less flamboyant butterflies but beautiful on the colour co-ordinated flower.
