Outstanding shot of this beautiful butterfly with immaculate sharpness and lovely shades of brown. A classic pose captured here on that thin stem with perfect light and exposure levels. Excellent DOF and a fine composition. Thanks for sharing this great image.

Hi Greg. You are turning out some beautiful pictures . this is a very good close up of the butterfly not to sure of the ID someone will help. Great detail and colours. Stands out so well against the plain BG. well done TFS.
simply perfect, this picture of a female Pararge aegeria (Nymphalidae, Satyrinae).
Really admirable sharpness and optimal point of view.
The colour patterns are so clear, sharp and brilliant.
Best wishes, Peter
P.S. > Will be included in the 'Satyrinae - Worldwide'

The earthtone colors of this butterfly are exquisite. The background is perfect for it. A magnificent pose on the diagonal reed. Colors, textures and details are all excellent. It's hard to believe that the weather conditions weren't ideal.

A very nice shot of "James" here :) He looks ok, considering he died some time ago :))
Seriously now, this is a splendid macro, especially considering the conditions. I was out yesterday, too and i had the same problem: windy conditions and lack of good focus or DOF on the subjects...i got really nervous!
Anyway, yours here is spot-on, with impeccable details and a gorgeous uniform BG behind the b-fly.
The colors are indeed lovely and the palette is vast, while the composition is terrific!
Bravo and TFS

What a gorgeous butterfly.
I can't stop looking at the warm palette of colors, so harmoniously blended,
as only nature can do.
Amazing details well shown against the clean BG.
And I love the slightly turned head, giving you excellent eye contact.
TFS. ; )
