Found this little one at the National Butterfly Center in Mission, TX a few weeks ago. According to my field guide this is a female. She is quite small - wingspread only about 35 mm.

Following a suggestion I received on a recent post I selected the BG and then did a layer mask and used a lighten mode on the BG layer.

D500 with 150 mm macro lens, ISO 800, /320, f10. Processed in PS, Topaz, and Nik.

Thanks in advance for any criticism, suggestions, comments.

I like your comp, and you did well to keep detail in the whites.
Good light,
