I love that you chose a narrow of depth of field to focus on the one flower and butterfly together. Great choice, Dave! Happy composition too!
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but the heart as well. ~~Sheila

Dave this is a great shot Lovey dubby --especially with that second butterfly swooping in like that--what a catch! (I would be so proud if it were mine)
And it looks great as a thumbnail, too--I love it every time I see it in the bug ID forum!

anyway, I meant to say that a couple months ago but I got distracted, better late than never, I hope
(our power was just restored and I'm finding all kinds of "old tabs" open...and not what I was working on and looking for Rolling my eyes. )
