It is. You are at the northern limit of its range. It is an attractive insect - one I wouldn't mind having in my garden. Maybe someday. Nice composition. What is the plant?

This is just gorgeous. The lighting was just perfect and the exposurejust captured it the way it was. I especially like the lighting on the butterfly, seemingly a bit stronger than the surrounding's, thus making the butterfly more prominent in the shot. Without that magic lighting, the yellow flowers underneath the butterfly might have distracted the attention of the viewer. The shallow depth of view blurred the rocks, making them wall-paper like,in return enhancingthe prominence of thebutterfly.

The size of the butterfly was about right.

On the whole, nothing less and nothing more. A very real capture. I was like watching the butterfly on the scene myself.
