Butterfly and leaf

There are perhaps enough butterfly and flower shots in the world but I liked the shallow depth of field, the colors, the wood pattern in the background and the shape and focus and angle of the leaf it was gripping. I had wandered out into the garden when the light was nearly gone and shot fifteen images in the three places he settled on. These butterflies are most often in pairs and his mate was always nearby.
