This image is from last Summer, and perhaps one of my favourite butterfly species to observe and photograph.

Brilliant color-lovely butterfly and composition. Maybe the clover is a bit saturated? At least I haven't seen it look so bright here in dull New England. ;).

We have various shades of clover colours over here and this is certainly one of them - and it makes a beautiful combination with the butterfly captured here, Paul!

Wow- that's  lovely. Sorry I didn't know this color could exist-as mentioned, not here in Vermont!
. Congratulations on your EP, Paul.

     No need to apologize, Cynthia- your comments are always welcome and constructive. Every ones computer monitor probably shows some colours slightly different, so perhaps that is what happened here. Thanks to the editors for selecting my image for an EP.
