The aesthetics come through quite strongly in this well-composed shot, Janice.
The arrangement of long blades of grass including the one on top of the butterfly adds great beauty to this picture.
The subject, of course, is captured very well from an effective point of view, giving fine details on its nether wings.
Thanks and regards.
Fantastic shape of this butterfly. Its wing looks like big sail on boat! Great capture.
By the way - our olympic team won four medals yesterday, including 1G and 2S!

Congratulations for this outstanding picture! It's one of the best butterfly pictures of the last days, at least. The perspective and the depth of view are great, and the composition with the leaves is superb!
A real pleasure to look at...

You have made excellent macro work on this Brown Clipper Butterfly resulting with nice POV and composition, pin-sharp details and nicely blurred BG.

Nice composition and full frame photo showing good detail. Interesting note as well. With so many variations in colour
for a single specie it must maake id difficult.

This is very good, although I think I would try to burn in the hind wing and body a little bit. Gary

This is a very impressive shot. I am really amazed by the wonderful light in this photo. It gave the entire photo a real fresh feeling. The DOF and the composition are both wonderful. But I do have to mention that the photo could be a bit sharper.
Kia Ora Janice,
Perfect shot with compliment on this Clipper!
great pose of it in total sharpness, wonderful colour and details
Thinking of paying a visit to the Greek with my wife, do you have the address!
take care and sincere regards to you and Dave!
This is excellent macro work, although I see that you did not use a macro lens. Good pose, composition and BG. Well done.

A wonderful shot of this Clipper. When I saw this picture for the first time, I think it was a bit over-exposered. But aftee a while I think NO. All the details are perfect. It looks like a painting. So warm and beautiful. I realize again that Mother Nature is so beautiful.
Interesting notes and thanks for sharing. TFS BOB
Nicely done. You nailed this Clipper very well. And it is definitely not a Nail Clipper but a Brown Clipper:-).

Well done and majestic looking photo of a beautiful butterfly.
Nice detail in the shadows and highlights. The photo emphasizes wind motion to me with the way the butterfly is resting (nicely postioned by the way) and the leaves add to the effect. Contrast is well done.
I may have to check out our local butterfly houses near me. :)
