i probably could edit this to make the butterfly a little darker, but it seems to make the flower all blah.. ah well, bright sunny butterfly on this bright and cool summer morning..

Beautiful! I had a bunch of problems with cabbage worms/caterpillars in my garden last summer. As destructive as they are when they're growing, it's hard to be mad at them. They're just preparing for metamorphosis, and they turn into really beautiful creatures. smile

No, no edit needed on #1 as far as I am concerned, love the colors and the brightness of the butterfly. Beautiful!

You could use a mask to darken only the butterfly. Even so, I love the ethereal look of this image
