Esto es una mariposa muy hermosa. Me gusta mucho los colores pero por que... (My spanish ends here for now, but I told you that I'm learning from your notes!). Anyway what I'm trying to say is why you left that sun ray across the butterfly? Kinda spoil it. I did a workshop trying to get rid of that ray (It was pretty complicate) aniway, have a look.

Regards, Petru
