Must have been fighting, I suppose.

Nice image, although I don't know what you mean by "fighting." I think the butterfly itself is a bit washed out and would benefit from lowered exposure/brightness.

I was making a slightly feeble joke: half his tail is missing.

You're right, though. Here's a modified version.

Very nice Jeremy- well composed, lovely background and spot-on focus for a difficult subject.

+1.

And I'm pleased that you restored the missing part of "tail" to the topic title.

If, sadly, not to the butterfly. He seemed to be coping, though. I wonder how much the tail contributes to aerodynamics.

On reflection, perhaps the title was originally better... )
