    I adore nature pictures and the sharpness and closeness of this picture made me feel like I was right there.

    Good color and detail. I think the second butterfly with folded wings detracts more than it adds to the image. I don't know how much you may have cropped, but if possible I think I would try rotating the frame to the left 30 degrees or so and see if that improves the composition.

    The colour and detail in this photo are exceptional. IN my favourites.

    The left butterfly is beautifully shot, but the awkward, edge-on view of the other detracts measurably.

    Outstanding in all aspects. Was this hand-held? High in my TTs.

    Nice colors here. A different angle showing both butterflies full body would have made this perfect.

    good image... the two views make it interesting... color, lighting, focus and blurred background all work... in my TT
nit picking: the out of focus edge of the folded wings is a bit distracting, if the depth of field was 1/4 inch deeper you would have nailed it.

    Wonderfully sharp, especially when DOF could be challenging; great color rendition, and nice background bokeh. Tops.
