Somehow great pictures get overlooked. This is one great example. Such beautiful colors are almost beyond imagination. Do not be discouraged as though no person had noticed this picture. I do not know if you will post again or not, but I am marking this among my favorites and thank you so much.

Hi Tony - good to see you here!
Good shot of the butterfly, these are always so attractive. I like the angle of the wings. Maybe I would have cropped more around the butterfly and flower, concentrating mostly on them. Still well captured, and thanks for sharing.

Stunning image you have here, so much colour, and edited in such a way the main subject really stands out and grabs your attention, well done and this deserves allot more points than the 4 you have currently. Look forward to seeing more of your work :)

Hello Tony,
DOF is spot on and resulting in a butterfly with sharp fine details!
Image is well composed but maybe framing could be a bit tighter to leave out some of the background?
Fine point of view, attractive colours!

Hi Tony
Well it's this a colourful image, I like your butterfly, he's gorgeous. Plus the flower (Lantana) is so rich in colour. I love the composition, you've captured the butterfly at a nice angle. Well done.

Since you've not posted anything new, I thought I'd go back in your gallery a little way to see what I could find.
I must say that this first posting would have alerated me that somebody really good had just joined the clan (I was away when you joined).
Superb colours, outstanding details, and a very fine composition
and thanks for your kind words for my "Season's End"

Una maravilla
