Thanks for the comments. It was a lovely morning and a lovely moment. This powerful dominant male of the area was out for a stroll when the butterfly crossed its path. They actually both seemed interested in each because the butterfly stopped and hovered in front of him on a couple of occasions. Had to move fast to get in front and try to compose as well as rapid focusing with him moving towards made this image a challenge to capture.
