Hello Anne,
Fantatic macro of these mating butterflies in splendid clear colours and fine sharpness. Great composition. Nice to see one hanging.

I like how the beetle is just minding his own business :) Love the colors in this picture. Very refreshing and wonderful focus.

This butterfly has amazingly delicate looking wings, Anne, and this picture of the mating pair is superb in every respect. The white balance is just perfect.
Additionally, we have the bonus third subject within the frame -- a bug partially visible below the flower.
Thanks for sharing this marvellous image.
