Of the three I definitely like this one best!
Very nice composition. Superb details and colours and the uncluttered picture appeals to me.
Hello Nigel it's a good photo,
but personal I think it could be better with a crop. ofcoarse is that a personal opinion, farther good point of view and a good dof, very good job.

Nice shot Nigel, excellent color and detail. Good background. I might try rotating CCW for a diagonal composition so the viewer does not have to tilt his/her head to see the butterfly details.

Excellent work again Nigel.
The natural color and even exposure is very nice.
The vertical compostion works well with the long dried stem running through the frame. Sharp detail, lovely smooth complimentary BG as well :)
superb picture with regards to all important aspects. 4 points(!) ... but not possible. It becomes a favourite picture, however.
Best wishes, Peter

beautiful dynamical composition, very nice pose, perfectly natural.
Very pleasant subtle colours in a well shaping soft light in front of a very well fitting distant and dark background.
Looks very good. Thank you!

Nigel, no problem in breaking the "rules". The image works greatly to me.
Excellent sharpness and blurred bg. The butterfly is colorful and cute.
Another excellent job.
I think you have the "third" horizontally, Nigel.
Anyway whether you have it or not doesn't matter; it is definitely a wonderful image.

Beautiful picture of this colourful butterfly. Excellent details.
I would have cropped the top and left but that's only my opinion.
