This is so beautiful, the contrast of the white wings is amazing. I love the delicate flower petals with this delicate butterfly hanging on them, well done. Great light and colors, the focus seems perfect.

Hello Chris,

Excellent pov and composition for this nice butterfly! You manages so well with the exposure. With white, it is not always easy! Very nice blurry bg complimenting the insect. Maybe a little bit too centered (not a big deal!). Details are awesome and excellent dof. TFS,


Hello Chris,
this is a great macro. Good POV, sharpness, colours and composition too. Thank you for posting.
