Yes, it truly looks like a stained glass, Manyee! Well composed against the almost black background. Could be even better if the overexposures on flowers were avoided. Best greetings!

Hey Manyee, nice macro.
I can see a small caterpillar, hiding from his older "friend".
Background is perfect, very nice colors but the head is out of focus.
The reflection on his wing (Flash?) is very distracting.

Interesting POV, Manyee. The sun is a bit harsh, but the overall effect works, particularly with the Monarch caterpillar in the shadows.

Apt title! It does indeed look like a beautiful piece of stained glass.
I actually like the effect of the sun here. Without it, I don't think the picture would have that stained glass feel that makes it so perfectly titled.
Well seen and well captured!

Manyee, great title, very nice effect upon the wings.
I love the monarch, and this is a very nice picture.
I like pov and composition too.
Nice shot Manyee. Good detail, color and I like this POV. Good back lit effect also. Perhaps some highlight/shadow adjustment would make it even better. Do you ever shoot in raw format? Well done & Thank You.
P.S. Did you notice the caterpillar on the flower stalk??

Beautiful image and unusual with the light illuminating the wings perfectly. Well seen!
