I always feel so sorry for them when I see them like this. But you got a beautiful picture of it with the wings spread out so we can see its gorgeous colors and markings. The purple of the flower and the green of the leaves, along with the background, gives you a wonderful color balance. Lighting, composing, details all stand out. A favorite my friend. #11630192
