Very nice butterfly. Interesting POV, beautiful colors.

Hi Chris,
It certainly is a good POV looking from behind with the butterfly's outstretched wings. The colours are beautiful, but I'd probably increase the contrast a little bit to bring them out even more. Nice work!


Well composed pic, showing great colour and is very appealing to the eye. TFS,

Hi Chris,

Even if the image looks to me a little bit soft, it is a wonderful one! It is like a flower over a flower! You get a superb pov and I like very much the blurry green bg enhancing the insect. Orange over green is marvelous!!! Great job and TFS,
