[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The weather yesterday was great despite a cool start. We've had several very cool nights now and my butterfly sightings is greatly dreduced. Several showed up in the afternoon giving me this shot of a Gulf Fritillary here. Its nice having plenty of sunlight. Sorry for not having more variety here, but I'm shooting what showes up.

Thanks, Paul

Hi Paul,

What I like about this picture are the vivid colours and the composition you made. However, I'm a little distracted by the dark thing on the right side. I would have also liked it a little better if you had included the entire flower, but that's just me. As for the rest: nice picture.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hello Paul,
A low POV in this case makes for an interesting composition. Good focus in the head area and no noise visible in the BG. Beautiful vivid colors throughout the entire frame.

A beautiful shot, my friend Paul!
I have the same prob, nothing showin' up!

Ciao Paul, fantastic butterfly on a beautiful flower, splendid sharpness, superb details and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, have a good week, ciao Silvio
PS may be better if you cloned element at right:)

Ciao Paul. Wonderful colours and light by a difficult POV for this beauty.
