Crop, resize, new layer for levels, usm, saturation, cloned out some twigs and other debris.

Was sat in my chair in my garden with my 150-500 lens on the camera, was waiting for the buzzards that were flying around here earlier in the day, but they did not come back. Then I followed the butterfly as it danced around the garden, finally resting in my pond.

Whilst I was shooting the butterfly a frog lept out of the water hoping to make a meal of it - the butterfly was too quick and escaped!

The frog sat there for ages
