Hello Michael,
Nice capture from a beautiful PoV,excellent details and lovely natural colous.
Thanks and best regards,

Great capture of this elegant butterfly on sunflower, Michael.
We have a similar species in India that goes by the name of Plain Tiger.
The blue sky for a backdrop adds tremendous appeal to this picture.

Hi Michael,
this is an excellent close-up of the Monarch butterfly.
Well exposed, accurate WB, good sharpness with fine detail.
Maybe it's a bit tight cropped but it's of course personal.
Well done.
