Hello Les,
Very nice macro of this butterfly in excellent sharpness, details and natural colours. It was even more beautiful when there was a part of the right side has been removed with the leaves. So also the butterfly was more out of the center. Nice blurred background.

Hello Les - Beautiful coloured Butterfly and very well POV. I like the way you have managed such excellent BG. Good sharpness, as well as details. With due respect, I would like to clone the Bud(is it bud?) Out from right side. It's little bit distracting when concentrate on the butterfly. Although it's just my personal opinion. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Regards and have a nice WE- Srikumar
