This is another shot of the painted lady (Vanessa cardui).
I posted one earlier so you can find info on the species there.
This one was refilling for the migration (hopefully, as it may well not migrate and die).
It was nice meeting this great butterfly once more this year.

1. crop for different composition with butterfly more in right down corner
2. selective sharpen and unsharp mask on wings and body (maybe with original file you could do also a little additional sharpen on the body)
3. gaussian bluring of buckground (I think that it could br blured even more with more time)
4. contrast +4
5. white frame to close relatively dark buckground
I hope you like it
Best wishes
