Excellent macro Matt,
Very good lighting, sharp and detailed image, very nice colours.
Well done.

hello Matt
perfect scene and compo,
a beautiful photo

Hi Matt

Very good detail on the butterfly. I have seen many butterfly photos but none as good as this one. Good exposure and POV for this great macro!
Well done:)


Hi Matt
Everything is perfect here. Fantastic blured background, beautful light green color, perfect sharpness. The only thing that you maybe could change is crop - maybe you could crop it a little bit more to make the subject more prominent

a classic image but beautifully taken top marks.
