Good capture of this common in Poland butterfly Andy! I like POV and its pose, colours are very good, too. Blue spots on its wings are best.

very nice shot Andy,
the colours are super special the wings, I think the pov can be done better, so that you can see better the body who is now an the dark side., farther a very good composition, very good job

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour cette Petite-Tortue. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien adaptée.
Very Well Done !

Andy you always have to most colorful critters. I can see from the exif data that the light was not with you. I don't think you could get more DOF in this instance but if... :) Very nice photo, well done.

Good Morning Andy! A very colorful shot of your tortoiseshell..I hope you don't mind BUT this is a prime example of why auto settings usually do not produce the best results in macro..Your bright BG and dark subject has fooled the camera here..F 2.8 has lost much of the butterfly..But you knew that right! ;-)

Very, very nice picture. Superb composition and lovely bright saturated colors. Too bad the focus on the tips of the wings seems slightly soft. Good note! TFS!

This is a beauty Andy. The sharpness and DOF is excellent, combine it with the composition and you have a winner.
Very well done and thanks for posting

So colourful and "cliche" that looks a painting instead of a picture. A very beautiful and artistic work. My eyes are asking for a nice framing urgently :D
Thanks for sharing.
