Hi Jan,
This is really a razorsharp image!
I like so much the clear details got on the butterfly, the POV, close approach and the pose catched.
You did it great with the exposure and focus, to get this detail's level and no big noise ammount.
You made a very good composition with the subject and the crossing grasses at the background.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
