It seems to be a tropical butterfly. But did not see before this. Incredible details and sharpness on the wings, the bg is smooth and noisefree. i liked your POV here too.
TFS and have a nice WE!

Ciao Bev, fantastic butterfly with wonderful colors, splendid details, beautiful light and great blurry BG, excellent sharpness, very well done, have a good week end my friend, ciao Silvio
Hi Beverley. I have had a look in a book i have but nothing like this . I think i saw one like it in the London Buuterfly house when it was open. Are the wings damaged do you think. Any way. Taken with good detail and natural looking colours. I like the top POV. well done TFS.

I haven't a clue as to what it is except it's a butterfly, I assuume that it was taken at a butterfly farm or simular. Good focus on the body, slightly out of focus on the right wing tip, f/9 may have cured it. Good colours, the leaf details are also good.
TFS regards Bill

Hello Beverley, Looks like papillio family. The shot looks as if the butterfly is ready to take off to a destination. Well captured and framed. Well done Ganesh

Hi Bev :)
Lovely capture of the adorable butterfly!
The sharpness and POV are perfect, and so are colors in the picture. The great contrast between the butterfly's colors and the green-colored leaf, is wonderful.
Have a nice weekend.

A nice close up that shows good detail of this colourful butterfly. The green leaf is a nice compliment colour to the dark coloured wings. He's a real beauty. Excellent DOF and composition.

beautifully captured in its pretty and elgence. i like the sharpness of the wings with beautiful patterns and texture. The distance blurry background enhances the beauty and pushes the sharpness even more.
