Like very much that original and minimalist view of the butterfly. Slim body in the air. We see just enough to recognize it. Appreciate that you composed it with just a little part of the lilac flower. Agree with Debra about the nice bokeh.

Thank you so much Yves. I like the minimalist view too and that the focus was on the takeoff instead of the usual pose on the posies. Something different :)

Thank you Debra. This little guy was being elusive but I liked the mood of the image and it seemed like a good one to upload for the first day of summer too.

Beautiful shot Heather. I love the position and angle you captured the butterfly at. Great background bokeh as well.
