The swallowtail is perfectly framed by the sunflower. I also like how the color matches. Well done!

Gorgeous! At first, I thought you had Photoshopped the swallowtail on to the sunflower. But the third photo showed me you had made a 'lucky' find! As unbelievably beautiful as these photos are, I still prefer your art, dear friend.
