[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I said I'd post a shot of this butterfly's upperwings so here they are.
Some info on this butterfly is here from my last post of the Tailed Jay.

P+P: Cropped, adjusted levels, increased saturation slightly, added more contrast, sharpened edges.

Obvious patterns and angle of shot, plus that fantastic colour make this one stand out well Joey. The "ferny" type of perch give it an eye pleasing presentation. Very well done.
