Hi Chi
This little butterfly has got striking colours making for a high impact. The signal red and caterpillar yellow on the black background is marvelous.
The composition is great and by including the other OOF pink flowers, you create a lovely effect and reflecting a typical butterfly world where it can do some flower hopping sucking some juice with its natural straw. DOF & BG is great, colours is very nice and saturated, and exposure/lighting levels are perfect.
Very well done and TFS.
