What a charming butterfly!
The side POV here is really good and it shows us all the beauty of this little guy's wings. The details very very clear and sharp, the exposure is very well managed and the colors and tones everywhere are simply gorgeous! The flash work is great, too!
Also i very much like the DOF, isolating the subject very well from the blurred BG and the lovely composition.
A really good macro work!
Bravo and TFS

The "W" in white is quite prominently etched on its wing, Andy. The specimen is a bit tatty alright but the image is very attractive.
Merry Christmas to you too!

Nice presentation of this Hairstreak butterfly.
I like the POV used, and details you catched on their wings.
DOF works pretty well.
Very interesting your note.
Congratulations and happy holidays!,

I am glad to see your new nice picture. First of all I want to say: "Amazing colourful BG. Its blue-green colour tones and blurriness are beauty at high level". The image of the butterfly is perfect: sharp, extremely well detailed with exact colours and nice pose of the insect. Cropping and composition are perfect as always. Bravo and TFS.

Nice presentation of w-album, sharp and well composed.
We have this species in Sweden, often seen on various deciduous trees after the honey dew left by aphids.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Bella macro para tu fugaz regreso Andy con luminosidad, agudeza y apropiado foco y profundidad.
El DOF produce además el necesario desenfoque del fondo, que realza la belleza del insecto y la flor que la soporta.
Me gusta también el encuadre elegido para su presentación.
Mis mejores deseos para estas fiestas que se avecinan... Ricardo
Beautiful macro for your fleeting return Andy with brightness, sharpness and appropriate focus and depth.
DOF also produces the necessary out of focus of the bottom that enhances the beauty of the insect and the flower that it supports.
I also like the elected framing for its presentation.
My best wishes for these holidays that approach... Ricardo

Happy Christmas to you & your family as well mf.
What I like most is the overall color scheme, with blues of the BG highlighting your subject. Sharp, detailed, and exposed well with great DOF Andy..
Merry Holidays ;}

Personally, I think the POV is ok. Detail is pin sharp and colours very natural, That white streak really adds impact to the subject.

Still to busy to upload your intro? ;-)
I'm glad you have some time to post pictures though :-)
This one is really nice because of BG. Love the mix of green and blue. The butterfly is very sharp and clear and the picture is nicely framed.
