[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Using f/2.8 I was able to achieve the bokeh in the background putting the whole focus on the subject. I prefocused on the flower so when the butterfly arrived I was able to shoot it mostly in focus.

Tried several angles of this particular butterfly with this profile image working the best.

Hello Larry,
Great shot of this beautifully photographed Monarch. Wonderful detail and attractive natural colors. Like the blurred BG. Well done!!


Good composition, choice of subject, POV, DOF and the clear BG.
