    Gorgeous shot of the butterfly on the flower..We have very few butterflies this year...My husband mentioned too the shortage of Monarchs we have seen in recent years.and not as many tiger swallowtails either...It is pleasure to see the swallowtail here il and such a beautiful capture of it on your shot!!!..

    so well balanced and framed--love the little bit of yellow and what it does to draw the focus
