    Dahlia’s one of my favorite flowers with all of the perfect varieties. The soft colors of the moth make these white Dahlia’s outstanding.

  • Thank you for your kind comment.

    Well captured, Kathryn. The colours of the dahlias and the butterfly are very harmonious.

  • Thank you, Karina. Both were very delicate subjects and difficult to capture, as the butterfly kept moving!
