|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The HDR process can many times really enhance wildlife images. I am re-visiting many of my images (of all types) with this process some of which are posted to the Trek sites.
I thought I would try reprocessing this particular image using Nik HDR Efex Pro (single-image tone mapping) and repost the result. I used the Natural setting at about 15% and added 20% Structure.
ORIGINAL POST DATA:
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.

I tend to agree with George. I think the HDR effect is more suitable for landscapes. Also sharpness could be very much improved!
I like your photo. Amazing colours and point of view. I agree that sharpness is not perfect, but I like this atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice result with this HDR processing. The nice and green bg enhances very well the butterfly. The only thing maybe is that IMHO, I found that the insect needs more room around him...
Félicitation pour cette très jolie prise de vue . C'est vraiment un beau papillon et les couleurs sont justes,ainsi que la netteté et les détails.
Merci pour l'envoie et Bravo....JP
