Very good capture of this Dusky Knight with excellent composition, BG and POV. Colours are also bright and natural but I would udjust exposure to slightly darker.

belle image de ce papillon dans son milieu naturel, l'herbe donne un bon effet 3D. Composition soignée, netteté impeccable.

bellissima macro di farfalla, classico POV e composizione molto bella con gli steli d'erba bagnati dalla rugiada, buona nitidezza, molto belli e naturali i colori.
Grazie e complimenti.

Wow Chris, great macro work. I like it.
The two OOF blades of grass don't spoil the overall impression of this otherwise sharp closed-wing portrait of a Dusky Knight and the fine OOF BG helps to make it stand out. Nice low POV and composition.
Does this species ever rest with itw wings open?

Very interesting to see the Australian version of Satyrinae with the double-centred eyespot; I didn't know that.
I also like the fine colours of the background, giving to the picture a special touch.
Thanks and best regards

just a few days ago when I was after some butterflies in this year's dense vegetation which is very high due a lot of rainfall in Central Europe this year, I thought it was great weather for seeing unusual numbers of butterflies, and at the same time I thought it was hell to take pictures of them with all those blades of grass between them and my camera. Now I see that in tropical Queensland it seems to be just the same.
You got a pin sharp image of this pretty satyrinae butterfly - taken just at the right moment before it was completely hiding away its conspicuous eyespot at rest.
The raindrops on the grass are a very nice and fresh adder, colours are gentle and pleasant. And the blades of grass between you and the object are hardly to be seen, and do not spoil the image. Well mastered, indeed!
With thanks, and best regards,

This is brilliant stuff. Great focus but slightly oof in the lower portion. But eye contact is very good. Ganesh
