Hi Clint,
this is sure an interesting way you have presented this little blue butterfly.The colour and details are very nice with good focus rounding it out.Nice and thanks for sharing.I do not know just what the name is for this. Bob

You do have a talent for unique presentations.. very dramatic. The colors and sharpness are wonderful. You seem to get that same wonderful green in so many of your shots. I am a bit curious as to how this would look with a square crop.

Lovely work as usual.

Hi Clint,
Very nice composition. I like the special management of light, the sharpness and the colours.

Hi Clint,
another of your typical, background composed macroshots tht I like very much. Sophisticated illumination, good composition, sharpness, all add to the success. Well done.
I wonder about the grey blemish on the wing upperside. But leave it, it looks like a part of the pattern.

Best regards,

  • Great

Hello Clint, this is a beautiful composition of the Common Blue Butterfly. I love the lighting and vignette feel to the edges. Beautiful colour, details and sharpness. Excellent.
