Nice one Dwayne. The butterflies love those thistle blooms.

That is a grand shot with super clarity, composition and colour.

Very nice capture. The thistle must have some really attractive pollen to encourage the butterfly to venture in.

I love this shot. The contrast between the sharp thorns and the soft gentle colors of the flower and the butterfly is exquisite.

That's beautiful! How do they get in and out of there without tearing themselves to shreds?!

Wonderful shot with a great composition showing the differences between the soft butterfly and the harsh thorns!
