Nice shot. I love the color contrast between the flower and the smooth green background, and also the focus, which is more on the flower than on the butterfly. Lights are fantastic, too. The only thing I should change is cropping a little more from left (and also from the top, but even less) to allow the flower and the butterfly forming a diagonal line. Otherwise good work, I like it.
Best regards, László
very good sharpness and composition with beautiful colours
thanks gr lou

I have to say this tiny Plains Cupid butterfly is certainly a beautiful specimen, but the flower it is perched on is also an eye catcher. Both are photographed in excellent detail and vivid color.
I don't see many of these tiny butterflies here in our area, and the ones I do always seem to be extremely low to the ground. I would love to capture one posed high up on a beautiful plant like this. Great shot!!
