Hallo Silvio
Everything in this image is just so pretty. The flowers are so dainty and beautifully shaped, the colour of the butterfly's wings glows with warmth and the green plantlife boosts this great image just more than it is. Everything is just so pleasant to look at. Thanks for sharing this image that is very praiseworthy. Best regards.
