You capture one the best picture of a white cabbage butterfly that I ever saw!!! Composition, pov, dof, wings details cannot be more perfect!!! The only thing is that it seems to have little noise in the background...
Ciao! and TFS,
Nice capture. Isn't it always way more satisfying capturing animals/birds/insects away from the confines of zoos and the like. Still I think that B'fly House out at Mangere is a great place to practice.

Well done on the capture and composition and details.
A little noisy.
Very pleasing frame, I like it.
Excellent detail and color, great light and DOF. I like the POV and composition also..
If you're open to constructive critique? :)
I would apply a slight blur to the BG, and remove that little green leaf, bottom left frame...
Very well done mf!

Hi Janice...from New Zealand :) Nice capture of your cabbage butterfly. He's still rather beautiful sitting on the lavander. I love how the lavander peeks through behind him adding that gorgeous lavander colour. Your lighting is perfect. :) Janice/Canada

Hi Janice, the detail here is great...you can see the tiny hairs on the wings. The colours are nice and I like the grainy BG. I notice a chunk ouT of the right wing - I wonder if this affects the butterflies aerodynamics and flying ability at all?

Nice close-up! Focus is sharp and exposure is excellent. Cropping and composition looks good. Shallow DOF and blured BG are beautifull.
Splendid image and TFS.

An excellent image of this common butterfly. What this shot demonstrates is that regardless of how relatively common your subject is, you can still get capture a fantastic image that make people look. And that's exactly what you've done here Janice. A superb shot, perfectly composed with stunning definition of wing veins and folds. The whites are perfectly exposed. Well done.

Hello Janice, I like a lot this shot. Very rich details, and the butterfly is really beautiful. Great exposure. Well done, Gabriel
Congratulations and welcome in the real world, Janice.
Today, I have time to write some words. It is raining in my world.
Few days ago I saw:
A litlle blue butterfly
With the color of your eyes
Which whirled in the skies.
And that made a Sheakspeare of me ;-)
Thank you mf.

A real butterfly caught with real enthusiasm and real joy in accomplishing this real excellent capture. That was a real mouth full. CONGRATULATIONS.
You did great with the composition, frame and POF. The colours are fine and the DOF is superb at f/9 with that Tamron lens starting to perform some amazing close-ups in your hands. The BG is remarkable (little bit of noise but nothing major that PP could not sort out) and the exposure came was done perfectly considering the difficulties in capturing white subjects.
Very well done and TFS.
