|The first days of spring...!|
The small tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) feeding on the first blossoms.

Against such blue sky, this composition is looking eye catching to me. Beautiful color and well sharpness here, although light on facial portion has been blocked by its own wings.
And it's mother nature! Unpredictable! Nature doesn't take selfie.....so as a representative the way you have showed us this beauty, is really splendid.
Thanks for sharing

I really like the vertical composition and the POV you managed to capture. Colors are vivid and natural. Focused nicely where you want it the most and blurred where it is less important. Love the way the lighting illuminates the wings as well as the blossoms. The deep blue sky and semi blurred blooms make for an attractive BG. This is one butterfly I don't see often here in Ohio, but always a special treat when I do.
