Hello Seyfi,
What a great shot of this Pearly Heath in a wonderful pose. This particular butterfly is not all that easy to photograph due to it's unique wing texture. The lower wing has a furry almost wisker-like look to it. You have done a fantastic job on focus, composition, color and exposure. The clean BG is a bonus. Love it!!
