In my opinion, macro photography is about storytelling and the details; here we have symmetry but with subtle differences.

This pair of Polyommatus icarus (common blue butterflies) were resting on this single stem, their equal weight bending the delicate structure at the base. I shot multiple images handheld, and then focus stacked them together.
