Beautiful butterfly ! the once I have seen in our garden this year, were pale yellow and looked rather miserable !

A really beautiful photo! Butterflies are so frustrating to capture aren't they? Always flitting around , never staying still! You did well:)

Interesting compositiion and great shot of the butterfly. Thank you for sharing it on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

LORIK,
THE DEAD BLACK-EYED SUSAN STEMS IN THE BACKGROUND DIDN'T DO THE COMPOSITION JUSTICE BUT THE MORE I LOOKED AT IT THE MORE I WAS OK WITH THAT DARK ELEMENT. AND, WHEN YOU'RE SHOOTING OUT OF A WINDOW TRYING TO CAPTURE A FLUTTERING BUTTERFLY YOU TAKE WHAT YOU CAN GET. :)
