An Australian Painted Lady (Vanessa kershawi) with a wingspan of around 5cm. This is a profile of individual I post yesterday. Here you can clearly see the proboscus with theflowers of the Round-fruited Tea-tree (Leptospermum sphaerocarpum).
Hope you all have a wonderful New Years eve and I'll see you all again next year.

Very good macro Chris.
Nice colours, good details and compostion.
You handle exposure of the white flowers very well.
Good work.

Happy New Year.

A good macro, but it would have been better to increase f-stop to f11 to get better details.
Happy new year.

Good, but what do you think about decreasing f? BG should be more blurred then and your subject more visible. Anyway - very good picture.

Happy New Year to you!

Good macro Chris. I think that your DOF is just perfect. But I would have blurred a little bit the bakcground. Either by decreasing F or using the Blur tool in PP.
I dared a very humble workshop.
Happy New Year.
