Looking forward to your note but I like the shot. Since Callie did his first online workshop I wanted to try it myself - and you drew the short straw. I tried a different crop so that the flowers form a natural frame and added a bit of contrast (+6. Please let me know what you think.

It's a little bit under exposed, but composition is very good : butterflies are not easy to get.
A good indentification, waiting for further note.

Nice focus and composition, it's a little dark but hey, it is July in the UK! ;-). Good that both antennae are in the DoF, the powdery nature of the wings is also very well captured.
When is the sun going to arrive? :-(

A very good and well composed shot.
Excellent detail of the butterfly with good focus and very nice DoF.
A good informative note.

It's not your best photo, let I say that. But I like it too, because the good dof, and the fantastic note. This made two parts one. Very good job Robbert

Hi Robert, saw this last night b4 bedtime, but waited for the note. This is very soft, like in pleasing, not OOF, and the light is good enough to bring the green luminence out of the scales. nice compo too.
Nice picture of this butterfly. I like the softness in the picture, but it disturbes my eye with the lamp - I guess - in the background. It looks like it is about to turn over. Otherwise I like the picture, it is very pleasent to look at. I like Japie's WS too.
There are a few issues in this shot that I'll try to adress in a workshop.
First is a compo problem, your structure lines are not defined or strong enough, I may advise using a tilt.
Then I think the image is both slightly underexposed and would a light spot that would beef up the overall tones.
