A beautiful photograph. It's especially nice that you caught it with the wings up so we can see the entire torso. That doesn't happen often.

Lisa Gordon said...

Wonderful capture, and so beautifully composed.
Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

I've never captured one where you could see the whole body and believe me, I've tried. You have made a beautiful and unusual image.
