This was taken with my pocket camera! Butterflies were everywhere that afternoon and i truly got lucky to catch this with the dark lush background. Don't you just love it when nature poses for you?

Hello Brenda!
I have a pic from the same butterfly! If you want to have a look...Here is the link: http://www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=254857
Your pic is lovely with a BG better than the mine ,excellent POV and white/balance, but the sharpness is not so good...You can improuve it with a post processing.
Thanks for sharing and my best wishes,

  • Great

wonderful and colorful species of butterfly that imitates the grey pansy in india. good work. tfs.

Ciao Brenda, a little lack of sharpness but lovely macro of beautiful butterfly, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, friendly Silvio

Hello Brenda,
Nice shot, With the focus a bit soft in the butterfly (you should improve on that).
This is a beautiful idividual of Anartia jatrophae (white peacock).
Remember: improve your focus skills!

çok küzel bir kelebek.elinize sağlık:)

Hi Brenda,
Gorgeous buttefly. Very nice compostion but I think that the focus could be better.

people love butterfly.

Hello Brenda,
You are so lucky to have the butterflies pose for you. Pity the details are not so clear but I like the color on the green background. Well done and tfs.

Brenda, great shot of this butterfly, although the sharpness is not quite there. I love the beautiful background. The flower is a nice touch. Have a great weekend, Bill

Its a beautiful capture with pleasant softness which works quite well here Brenda! Not bad indeed if given the fact that a compact camera has been used! Love it!

Hi Brenda,

Masterpiece composition especially considering being light & lens challenged. The pastel browns contrast so favorably with the lush green bokeh. The butterfly is in perfect pose. Very well done & keep posting your work!



Hi Brenda, your butterfly is really nice, I like the colors in your picture, congratulations !

have a good time,

ciao, tino

Ciao Brenda. Good colours and contrast for the beuaty. Details are good too.


It's a stunning image Brenda. You show it well. Good clear colours too.
I started off with a pocket camera too - a Sony P8 and learnt a lot using it. But you don't tell us what your pocket camera is. That would be useful.
