Fabulous macro, Matt. The details are super sharp. The colors and patterns on this butterfly are gorgeous. I love the fringe of the metallic blue. It is not a common butterfly where I live, so it is a treat to see him. TFS.

Hi Matt, nice capture. You are correct they are common but beautiful. The details and colours are excellent, I think the composition is a little too centred for my taste, but that's my taste. Well done.

great pose, very rich yet naturalistic colours,
very well focused, amazingly clear details over almost the whole area of wings -
even the fine hairs on wings and body are excellently visible,
very well set of from a still well recognizable BG.
That's a superb shot of that lovely good old nettle loving b-fly.
