Hi Mike,
You have caught them red-handed in bed. Very tender moment captured with immaculate sharpness. Lovely colours and spot-on focus. Nice POV. Very interesting.......I have seen butterflies 'in the act' lying down. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Preciosa composición con un buen enfoque. Oportunidad en la toma. Saludos Mike.
