[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was visiting a friend who has a large garden and this cluster of gazanias were within the garden.
There were a lot of small butterflies fluttering around the gazanias. Something about the gazanias really attracted them.
This is my one and only shot of a butterfly all season.
PP work
The butterfly is very tiny. Perhaps I should have done a much closer crop.
Crop, original, resize. sharpen in PS.
And now I discover I have posted the wrong image. I had done a much closer crop. I will repost tomorrow.
