Hi Pierre,

A extremely nice shot of this butterfly, one not seen in the UK. Excellent dof and focus makes this really stand out. Nice colours and background.

Hello Pierre,
I'm sure you smiled when you brought this shot up on your screen, it's gorgeous. The butterfly is a real beauty showing excellent detail and stunning markings. I really like the large eye spot and earth toned colors in it's wings. The plant is lovely and is a real bonus to the overall attractiveness of the image.
The only minor thing I would have considered doing differently would be to crop out a little on the right side, not placing the butterfly in the center of the frame. This is just my personal preference, as I love the shot and wish I had taken it myself:)

Hi Pierre,

Very nice image, just one thing lacking here and that's depth of field, if you cranked the ISO up a little you could use perhaps f8 or better..., however a good attempt,
