Hi Jim
I like this sot very much. Great natural colors. Nice OOF buckground (little noises are a minor thing here) Good composition. Sharpness is pretty good but I think that it could be almost perfect. I think thet it is possible to do selectice sharpening on wings here. It will look better.
Best wishes

Hi Jim,
Very fine capture of this beautiful butterfly from a nice angle. Excellent sharp details of the wing pattern and lovely colours. I dont' find the background too busy but rather like those diagonal flower stalks and the pretty white flower. It stands out very nicely from the green background too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Superbe composition , magnifiques couleurs, une grande réussite.

Hi Jim,
Wonderful shot of the Common Buckeye with such sharp details and fabulous colours. Superb lighting and expsoure and you have captured a fine pose. I like your POV to portray it this way and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Jim,
really an original POV, the wings at 90°, and a great sharpness of the butterfly's design... The white of petals is so bright. Nice shot, ciao.

Great colours, superb details, perfect PoV and composition

Hi Jim,

A good POV of the Common Buckeye Butterfly, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. thanks for sharing.


Nice colors and good exposure Jim.
It's well composed and I like this POV showing off the inner wing patterns & details well.
Great post.

I haven't seen a buckeye here in months. I guess they've gone south to your neck of the woods.
Wonderful sharpness, great detail, beautiful shot!

Hello Jim,

This is a fantastic shot, possibly one of the best I have seen from your camera! The sharpness, details and colours are first rate! The composition and light are also great! Well done!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
