Interesting pose, Karl, the wings look almost like seashells.

It is a very unusual pose Karl. You need to remember I am old but I thought it was two butterfly's on a flower looking at the thumb.

I think this is one of those unique photos that you will either love it - or hate it.  Me - I Love it!  :)

Thank you all. I'm not crazy about the OOF wings but find the pose unique.
I could have shot with 1/3200 s or 1/4000 s as there was enough light but I did not. 
The head/eye are sharp and it is the most important part when it comes to sharpness.
