Splendid shot of this butterfly - what's in a name? Lovely colours and patterns on its wings and the red and yellow flowers sets up a nice tone. Superb lighting and sharpness. I like your POV to portray it side-on and the BG which illustrates the habitat well. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Wonderful colors in this image - and I'd go with the American Painted Lady on this one...
(I use bugguide.net to identify many of my critters...)
Great shot! Cheers, Klaus

Great clear shot. Wonderful colors - beautifully vivid. And like Mana said, the POV is very interesting. You captured some great detail - down to the flower's stem. Great one!!!! I think this is my favorite of your butterflies. :)

One of your best Jim. I cannot find a thing wrong technically. Aesthetics wise it is wonderfully entrancing.

great colors excellent focus nice background. great shot
a gorgeous mix of colors. A fantastic colored flower, but the butterfly seems to watch at you, really amazing and singular.
Have you called her before...? Sharp and neat.
(It's a joke), regards.
Hi Jim, very beautiful butterfly. Nice colours. Not the best POV you would have liked I guess. Has come out sharp.
Nice work, Regards, Kiran

A lovely capture of the Painted Lady, Jim.
Excellent point of view, very fine details and delightful colors.
Well done and TFS.
Hi Jim, I rearely see the Painted Lady but I see a lot of the American Lady butterflies (they are almost identical). Very nice POV, good composition. Excellent exposure with vivid color. The details are excellent.

bellos colores y sensacional pov,
I love the pose you captured! Composition, colors and BG are beautiful! Did you use noise reduction on the full image as it seems that some details on the butterfly have disappeared? This is a beautiful capture anyway, this is very nice :-) Thanks,

Hi Jim, Georgeous shot with lovely details. May be it would have been excellent if you had changed POV little bit. But still lovely picture. The eyes are amazing. Due to this angle the darkness is more on the side and if you had gone on different angle, the light would have been more on the bottom,resulting in lovely shot. Great shot still. Ganesh PT?

a wonderful shot with excellent colors and lovely composition.
The sharpness is very nice. Possible a bit to much neat imaging as the textures are to smooth for my liking.
All in all quite nice.

parfaitement nette,colorée et avec un superbe point de vue.
le BG est exempt de bruit et avec sa couleur met bien en valeur le papillon.
