Lovely lighting and a great background - just needed a smaller aperture to capture the eyes, antennae and wingtips within the DOF. However, I can see that you were working with a low shutter speed and wide aperture so the light intensity cannot have been very bright.

A good effort for your first effort on butterflies. Focus is good but f8 may have helped, although the speed would have been slower. Colours are good and clear.
TFS regards Bill

Your Peacock is splendid, spread wings are sharp, beautiful colours against clear neutral BG.

really nice try, the peacock is beautiful, very good open-wings-pose showing us all the wonderful colors and
details, just the focus is a little bit soft especially on the head and edges of the wings. the shutter speed with 1/125 for
300mm could have been too slow and an aperture of f/5.6 is still too open, f/8-f/13 creates a better dof, but for that i
guess the iso200 would have had to be boosted to 400 or more, which on the other hand could have resulted in noise, or you
could have used a flash...so, keep on trying, you are on a good way. best wishes & take care, thor.

Hi Peter. Nature has made this European Peacock with such beautiful markings and bright colours. Which you have captured in this first class picture. Your POV/DOF. is spot on. The butterfly stands out so well against the plain grey BG. Well done TFs.

A beautiful Peacock in a magnificent diagonal composition. I love the open wings showing off the deep colors and wonderful markings. The background is absolutely perfect. Funny, when I first looked at this picture I thought the butterfly was in mid-flight.

You caught this Peacock butterfly with so little under it that it almost looks like it is flying!
Though it is a little worn the details and colours are excellent and the composition perfect.
Just now our garden is being invaded by both Painted Ladies and Peacocks!
Thanks and best wishes,

a fine capture of this European Peacock in a excellent pose with wings wide open
against a beuatiful grey BG, great contrast
the whole butterfly is well detailed with wonderful colors
Have a good night
Good pose of this attractive butterfly. Good diagonal composition. I think the DOF could have been a bit better as the antenae and mouth parts are not in focus. Sorry for the harsh critique :)
