Another butterfly from Bethabara Gardens. This one bears bright blue female markings. I met several friendly gardeners taking care of individual flower and vegetable plots.

Hello Greg,
A beautiful shot, great exposure and details, lovely colours and good DOF. Nicely composed too with the Butterfly just at an angle turning into the frame, and the Butterfly and flower the only colour against that green background. Very nice work.

The colors and details on this shot are superb, Greg.
I also like the slight angle of the butterfly, on a bed of magenta.
Just beautiful.

Bonita composición en diagonal con excelente DOF y nitidez.
Agradable colorido, el fondo no está lo suficientemente desenfocado, pero no desmerece la calidad de la presentación.
Saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful composition in diagonal with excellent DOF and clarity.
Pleasant coloring, the background the is not sufficiently unfocused, but non be unworthy of the quality of the presentation.
