Hello Matt,
Excellent composition, very sharp, with a beautiful back light, wich gives unusual warm tones on the flowers and the edges of the wings. Congratulations,

Hi Matt

Cracking shot of the orange tip - the symmetry of the two cockoo-flowers, the muted colours of the background and the lovely subdued backlighting make for a great shot!



Hi Matt,
Excellent portrait with great lighting and very sharp focus. Thanks.

Hello Matt,

Well composed and wonderful shot!
I like this artistic image as well as very beautiful butterfly.
And, two flowers that drip downward draw out good effect in the whole, I think. If I say the desire a little technically, it finishes a more impressive work when you make the shade of the background thinner.
