    Thanks Charlie! As with most of my photos, it was just the luck of the ol’ point and shoot. I think they were so busy being amorous that they didn’t notice me right next to them, clicking away

    Always appreciate your kind words. 🙂

  2. What an amazing photo, I am such a huge fan of butterfly’s so I really appreciated the effort you put in to this image.
