Lovely composition, Su. The colors are gorgeous. The blurred butterfly adds a special touch to the scene, bringing a sense of urgency. Excellent clarity and sharpness. Congratulations. : )

This is just amazing, excellent macro, maybe the best I've seen on TN since a long time

fantastic! it is so romantic and tender! great composition, dof, light, colours. really great shot.

Wow, this is a magnificent shot. Great action and details. The BG is awesome. Very well composed. Nice work. Thanks

Great capture with good sharpness and colours. I'm amazed you could stop the action this much on a flying butterfly with just 1/125 ;-)

What a great photo.
Superb colours and light, fantastic Dof and details.
Good composition, excellent work.

Both butterflies are well detailed and sharp. Great capture.
