Hi Anne!
Very good shot with great sharpness and details. But i would have liked to see that butterfly from top to see its real beauty. But again being a photographer i also know the limitations that its not always possible to get your desired shot. Still, i am happy with the good quality of your image.TFS
Best Regards,

Hello Anne,
Very interesting POV, great composition.

Hello Anne,
What a creative way to show off this little butterfly. We have all seen them from the typical POV, but you went a step farther and have given us a unique look all it's own. Focus is tac sharp and DOF is great. Both butterfly and flower are seen in excellent detail. I like it because it gives us something different.

Hi Anne,
it is unusual POV, but well captured with excellent sharpness and neat BG.

Liked it.
