The Tithonia is collapsing under its own weight - you'll probably only have to endure one more (after this) butterfly shot on it this year.  It sure has been a magnet!

Wow! great image! I like the diagonal composition with the stem coming from left lower corner. Great colors of both flower and the butterfly. the backlighting on the wings adds more to the image. I think you have done well taming the strong light on the flower. A very strong image!

Excellent image of a butterfly that rarely settles down to a nice pose like this.

A beautiful bf and bloom, captured impeccably! The pose, exquisite detail and lovely complementary colours are a pleasure to view, Craig. A winner for me!
