Among Autumn Leaves ..
Excellent shot and well done on the details.
The composition would be complete if there was less space behind of subject.
The light was giving you a hard time on this one.

A great image. What an amazing butterfly, very easy to pass by.
Some slight OE and I have to agree with 'Fisher' on the composition, but a great post.
Thanks for sharing.

this is a wonderful butterfly, looking like an old leaf. You captured it very sharp and with a nice 3D-effect. Very well done, thanks

The Comma is a beautiful butterfly.
Good details and POV. As mention some parts are OE,
and I agree with Mike about the composition.

Great capture Nigel. Very sharp and clear - one can easily see the C-letter on the wing which gave name to this butterfly. Colours look great and the composition is nice though I personally would prefer a little more space in front of the butterfly.

A very interesting butterfly. He does look like a dried up leaf with his wings folded up. Great job on the detail and exposure on you main subject. reading the notes I understand the exposure . This would be a difficult exposure for any camera. Your have the best part perfect.

A butterfly in disguise! Its wings looks like autumn leaves. I have never seen this kind of butterfly. Probably almost impossible to discover, if you are not professional. Very good picture and informative note! TFS!

thanks for introducing this specis to TN. however i think the exposure is a bit too bright.
That Comma - we call it a "C" - does look a bit tired, too. But so do I.
Big smiley to you for that slightly overexposed document taken from a master of camouflage.
