Melissa- Good afternoon my friend. I don't think there is anything as amazing and beautiful as the wings of a butterfly. It is definitely on of natures best works.
The work you did to present this is sensational. Love the presentation and the way you framed it. Unique designs of the wings and those brilliant colors are stunning. Lighting and clarity are outstanding.
Elegant and exquisite work.
Have yourself a fabulous day, take care, enjoy

Thank you Frank and Bobby and again my thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on this picture. Indeed I don't think there is anything prettier than the wings of a butterfly. It is a challenge to stand still long enough for them to land and wait for them to open their wings...I have as I am sure many of you have...held my breath so as not to create any motion. Totally hard! But when your lucky enough...you get what your eyes see...well almost. LOL
Have a wonderful day!
Melisa :-)
