It is a good capture of this grass yellow. But I think POV wise could have been better (say a side POV or frontal). Anyway I know it is not easy as I can see the place where it was puddling. ;). Thanks a lot for sharing.

It is just coincidence that I also had something similar today. Only the view is different. I hardly find them on the ground or on view like this. This is good view. Ganesh

This image shows excellent contrast and sharpness as this grass yellow puddles for neutrients on the composting vegetable matter.
All the features are well shown in this closed-wing portrait, even if the POV is a bit oblique.
TFS this beauty,
Very interesting contrast between butterfly and the suport. Good sharpness, too.
All the best, Cezar T.
