[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another image of a butterfly taken while on holiday visiting Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park in Devon. The Butterfly House, for me, was one of the highlights of the day. Exotic butterflies from all over the world were flying freely whilst you roamed amongst them. If you are not keen on insects, then this place is not for you!

It was extremely humid inside which produced conditions difficult for taking photographs. Not least of which was the fact my lens kept misting over!

Anyway, this one is quite colourful so I hope you enjoy looking at him (or her).

very nice one Vicky,
the composition is nice only I think you let a little more space between the wings and the frame. Farther a good pov, and a exelent dof, nice result with the good camera, the 7000, well done,
gr. jaap

Vicky, very good shot. Great POV and very good details. Good visual impact. TFS.

Hi Vicky,
a beautiful shot of a beautiful butterfly.
Perfect DOF, I can see the trunk in the flower so clear. Very well done, thanks

Nice close-up of this one... Sharpness, colours and structures of the butterfly are clear and crisp, well done... Perhaps, the lest upper part of the background is a bit distracting...
Well done...

Hi Vicky,
A beauty and well done on the composition and details.
Abit tight on right and the flower is blown.
Excellent work though.

Very nice colours, good details and POV.

Very good indeed|
Excelent details and sharpness!
Beautiful butterfly!
5* photo!

Beautiful looking butterfly Vicky, good sharpness and composition although the compo is a little tight for me. A few blown Hl on the flower but nothing to distracting. Because of those issues 6/10 Well done, kind regards Steve.
