At the field
Hi there Oz, I wonder what this butterfly is called. Lovely colours and details, and his head and feelers are very sharp. Well done.
A note would be good to read about the butterfly.

Welcome on TN Oz.
Very nice close-up capture. Very good use of a very limited dof with the close-up lens. The colours and the composition are very nice.
Just a pity that you forgot to write a note about the picture. You do not need to be an expert in knowledge about the subject - but you can always write a little about the taking (use of exposure compensation, light conditions etc) which gives other photographers the possibility to learn from your experiences. - That is the meaning about this side and that makes it great.
Very good macro of what I think is a "six spot burnet moth" (Zygaena filipendula). You'll find some good notes on the site about this species, but a personal note is always appreciated. Nice colors with the BG daisy. Framing would gain with an off-center subject and a larger image. A smaller aperture (two stops or so), would still give you enough shutter speed, while improving your DOF (depth of field) a bit, giving sharper details on antennae tips and wings tips.

Nice shot, good colours and details. It's just a bit too small.

Welcome to NT. Oz.
Very attractive moth with good exposure. As Ornis said a bit more DoF would be better.
Very good colors in a nice composition.
Thank you for sharing.

Very good macro, Oz Ben.
Good details, nice composition and colours.
The DOF is shallow, a smaller aperture had helped.
Welcome to TN.

Very nice colors. Interesting subject.
I would have cropped a little so that the subject is less centered. the pic contains nothing relevant right and below.
Legs should be in focus.
I like your pic anyway. TFS
