Hi Sue, great POV and good detail. I love the lines on the leaves drawing ones eye to the butterfly. Your frame adds a nice touch. Well done.

Hello Sue,
I like this lovely Glasswing butterfly ! Yes, the geometrical leaves are interesting in background.
The "+++" : composition, subject, pose, POV, sharpness, DOF, colors, exposure...
The "=" : The frame is smart and I hesitate if it is a bit large or not ;-)
Congratulations and TFS.
