Hi Jan, nice catch of the butterfly here. Good focus and some nice detail. Good dof as the background compliments the butterfly so nicely. Very nice colors throughout. Well done, thanks.

Hi Jan,
Beautiful composition, with a nice POV. The blurred BG lets the butterfly stand out very well and shows off it's fine details. Colors and lighting are very nice also.
