One of the thrilling things about visiting your gallery is that we get to see some of the most beautiful butterflies in the world, ones that we would never even existed. They are so rare for us, like this beauty you have here. Such gorgeous colors and marking, love the details of it that you bring out so sharp and clear. The flowers are so pretty and I love the contract of the red against the rest of the picture. Another beuaty my dear friend. #9094145
