Sorry, the focus plane isn't on the butterfly but before it. As you can see the edge of the wing and the end of the antennae is correctly focused, but all the rest is blurred (out of focus). f/6.2 is way too open for macros, normally you should use f/11 or more (shutter speed permitting).
What's the camera? and the ISO setting? There is also too much noise...
The butterfly is gorgeous.
Try again :)

I think there is some problem in focussing. Always you have to focus on the EYE. Here there is no focus on the subject, and you tried un mask sharpness more- alot more- which has brought lots of noice. I think you should give one more try. but the subject and oppertunity is good.
Nice try. But always tend to get the focus on the front side of the subject (especially any insect). It could have bee a better pic if the focus was on the face. Anyway Its nature these type of BFs always sit on very small leaves which in a little amount of breeze tends to swing I think that's what has happened to this. TFS. My suggestion is to use flash but defuse it with some tissue paper or white cloth then try let's see what the result is.
Back Focus spoilt the foto.
selam narayanan; nice shot of this b.fly ,good details presented ,nice BG and POV well captured with nice colours but out of focus and the bg is noisy TFS
this butterfly is wonderful, so pretty design and the small tail is lovely.
The BG is a little noisy and the front parts could be sharper, anyway I love it.
Please don't mind, I tried a little WS for you.
Bye and greetings

nice colors but focus is a bit soft. also DOF is a little too low sinse the head and antenna doen't seem to be in focus.
This is a nice specie. Please do the following checks before pressing the camera trigger to get best results while photographing Butterflies:
a) Get Parallel to the wings of the butterfly to get the entire wing in focus
b) Try to keep the aperture at F8 or smaller
c) Keep the focus on the eye of the butterfly. Try using manual focus to achieve focus on the eye without having to change the composition.
d) Use tripod wherever possible to reduce shakes and movement of camera. At close focusing distances, it is difficult to keep the camera in focus when holding it in hand.
Good composition, but i guess you got into trouble slightly with the noise and the focus.
Have posted a WS, for my learning. Hope you won't mind and like it.
I think the previous post of this common pierrot was better as its lack of sharpness was not as obvious as in this photo. Also, there's a lot of noise. Lovely butterfly, though.
a lovely butterfly you've captured here.
The head is not in focus but it doesn't matter too much.

A marvellous butterfly with such beautiful wings in black and white with the three little blue spots!
I like a lot the POV and composition even if there is a bit of noise. The details are excellent nevertheless.
My compliments and TFS
