|7 butterflies in one shot is fun :-) I planted more flowers and bushes for them this year and it's paying off bigtime; when I walk into the yard on a nice day I am greeted by dozens and dozens of butterflies. Kind of magical.
For the record: 6 Tiger Swallowtails (5 light morph, 1 dark morph), 1 Monarch.
PP - slight rotation, cropped, 2nd layer (lightened, Gaussian blur, merged in multiply mode), increased saturation on everything but green, cloned out a few leaves on the far left, dodged shadowed butterflies, colored dark Tiger bluer on black part of wings, blurred some background more, resized, sharpened, added border.
