This image is a one of a kind for me. I am a just as I found it in nature type photographer. I am not saying that I don't do any touch up to my photos but what I do is very minimal, most of my editing is just to bring out the color. So for me to merge two photos into one is an oddity. However this is ultimately my favorite photo. It combines two of my favorite things, sunsets and butterflies. This image is hanging at my church. I donated the 11x14 print that I made of the image. I enjoy looking at it at least twice a week sometimes three. I was excited to have the Swallowtail and the Monarch land on the same branch. I had been stalking the Monarch and snapped a few images of him, and being the obsessive person I can be I kept stalking and low and behold the Swallowtail came into the pic as well. I hope everyone enjoys this image as much as I do.
