Hello Seyfi,
Very fine butterfly picture again. Pleasing decentred composition and amazing color-resemblance between the yellow of the gone flower and the yellow stripes on the wings. Perfect harmony!
Thanks and kind regards

The burrefly is well placed in the frame. The macro point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Idas Blue butterfly. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
