Karen- Your first butterfly couldn't have been a more beautiful one. I love the fasinating markings of the wings on this one and the eyes on it. Gorgeous colors and awesome features of this beauty. Love the beautiful contrasting colors of the flowers. Excellent composition and a delightful image. Bet you were so excited, know I would have been.
Amazing work my friend.
Have a fabulous day, take care.

Beautiful! The colors and the details are superb! I see your grape hyacinths are out... haven't spotted any here, as yet. This year, Spring seems mighty slow in coming. Stunning macro, Karen!
