Hello Andrew,
It's a lovely picture. Colours are great, I like the POV too. There's some a bit distracting burn out areas though overall the lighting looks fine.

Hello Andrew, lovely light and a very nice composition. For me it is a little oversharpened (not too much) and if I was being really fussy I would mention the light coloured stalk that appears to come from it's head. I am being really picky though...it's a great shot.

Excellent capture Andrew,
Good clear detail, colours and sharpness are spot on.
Composition and lighting are good. Good POV and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Love the colors and the light on this one, Andrew.
Excellent DOF and POV. TFS. ; )

Very good capture Andrew,
Under the circumstances, F 2/8 was neccessary? You have pulled it off very well, although I would not attempt it myself...
Well done.

Hi Andrew,
Excellent presentation!
Very nice colours and good details.

Beautiful warm colors shows off this butterfly well, with a nice DOF which encapsulates the subject in the focal zone. Nice image Andrew. :)
