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.

Excellent details and clearness in this shot.
Colours are vivid and composition great.
Nice work. TFS.

Beautiful butterfly, nice composition and DOF.

So many rich dark colors, in your subject, background and flowers. Interesting butterfly and great detail and lighting, thank you for sharing it with us, Matt.

Yor galery is GREAT on butterflies!
Another fantastic photo!
This specie is rare in Portugal.
Wonderful and natural colors!
Perfect sharpness!

Hi Matt,
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.
Regards, Peter
