Karen- Your first butterfly couldn't have been a more beautiful one. I love the fasinating markings of the wings on this one and the eyes on it. Gorgeous colors and awesome features of this beauty. Love the beautiful contrasting colors of the flowers. Excellent composition and a delightful image. Bet you were so excited, know I would have been.
Amazing work my friend.
Have a fabulous day, take care. #7410386
