Great catch of this butterfly, I have tried to catch some by myself but they allways fly away :)
Nice sharpness and collours, this blue colour make picture more interesting.
Well done and TFS

You did well getting a tripod set up to capture this guy. Personally I think a tripod is a waste of time for butterfly shooting, you usually only get a few goes at an individual and you can usually get enough speed hand-held and f4 or 5 usually gets you enough DOF.
Nevertheless, a good capture with good details. Perhap too tightly framed for my liking, but that's just my taste.

Very well shot of this butterfly. I like the pov and bg a lot. I agree with sandpiper2, framing is a little bit tight. Thank you,

Very nice close up.I liked POV,BG,colors and framing a lot.TFS...:-)
Very good picture of the "Little Grey". I really like the brown bg surrounding the butterfly. pov and dof are perfect. The picture looks a little bit soft to me. A did a workshop to put more sharpness to your picture... I hope you'll like it...

very nice pose, very clear shining colours, sharp details.
Cropping to my taste a bit too close, but certainly a very pleasant, well describing shot of a hard to catch and very quickly moving tiny butterfly.
Thank you, and best regards,

Photographing insects and small bugs does takes a lot of patience, hard work, and some sheer luck. I think you caught this little guy nicely. It's sharp enough to me after you post processed it. Good work, Matt.

I really like this one Matt, and having been there when you were stumbling around trying to take the picture was fun too. I also liked pilonm's workshop. Made a nice shot even better.

I think sharpness is good, just some fall-off towards the wingtip. Excellent colours and nice framing, very nice shot.

In fact your grey is Common Blue ;-) Very nice details and composition, slightly soft but not very much. I like it.
