The first shot is of course beautiful, but it strikes me as a color shot - Whereas the second shot is a standout for this challenge.

I see what your saying Dave. Perhaps it's because the butterfly is so dominant in the shot. Maybe I will try a different shot were the butterfly does not take up so much of the frame.
Thanks for your comment.

We'd make a sorry pair, I can't spell and you can't count. But, thanks for the nice compliment.
