Hi Kevin,
A lovely capture, so bright and colorful!
I like so much the composition made, the DOF works great to isolate the butterfly from the busy background.
I enjoyed a lot the vivid colours here!
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Hello Kevin,
At first sight I thought this looked too bright but I now believe it must be the right colour and it is wonderful! I think the grey background makes it really stand out and the details are razor sharp. Pretty flower too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Kevin,
This is a superb capture of a Far-Eastern Comma butterfly with excellent sharpness and fine contrasting OOF BG. The pose makes the central composition work well here. Nice lighting and colours too.
Well done and TFS!
Best wishes, Ivan

A real blast from the past, Kevin. What I mean is that you took this image four years ago and you were doing such good work even then.
