Wow, incredible color patterns on this butterfly!
You acheived a great open wing POV Mingfai as well as beautiful saturated color. Nicely composed and with good focus detail. TFS

The butterfly is very colourful and has been well captured. However, the use of magic wand to remove noise from the BG is a bit distracting around the antennae. I know it is a difficult operation.
The overall impact of the image is powerful all the same.

I like photographing butterflies too but it is hard to catch them with their wings opened. Great photo with good pov. The bottom of the wing edges are soft and I suspect the butterfly was probably gently fluttering its wings.

A good photo of this wonderful butterfly with wings open and an excellent composition. However the hind wings are a little OOF, probably because of the shallow DOF which resulted from the choice of f/2.8. A higher f/ value (e.g. f/5.6) would deepen the DOF and render the hindwings sharply in focus.

it's a very colourful picture showing the butterfly with pretty good sharpness at least of the frontal parts and the forewings.
You show here a particular form of
Chlosyne endeis / family: Nymphalidae
with brilliant yellow instead of white wing spots.
Best wishes, Petet
