Stunning capture Jennn. What a beauty.GrinGrinGrin
Your V2 says exactly what I had intended to suggest about V1 -- that the portrait orientation suits the image so much better. V2 is awesome.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
Got to have my award.

Wow, how lovely. Can't choose between them as they both stand out in their own right. The butterfly is beautifully showcased by the different flowers and grasses.

What a dilema trying to choose between these two superb images!
V1 is gorgeous with those flowers (rudbeckia? - nobody has named them yet and I'm not sure!)
but my goodness that close up in V2 shows the stunning beauty of the Swallowtail.

V2 is simply stunning Jenn, your butterflies are a lot more colourful, larger and more exotic than the ones we find in the UK
