Hi Donna,

Great colorfull capture of this monarch,maybe a bit tight crop on the top,well done and TFS,


Hi Donna,

Nice colours, the butterfly and flower goes together and creates a nice harmony. Just missing a bit of sharpness on the butterfly.

PC :)

Well done, Donna. Great job capturing the butterfly with all its details. But the orange pallette really maks the shot remarkable. Well done!

Bonita imagen donna con intensos colores, buen DOF y un encuadre aceptable... tal vez hubiese sido interesante ver la totalidad de la flor donde posa la mariposa.
Pregunta... por qué con el POV elegido, utilizaste F10 en este caso?
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful image Donna with intense colors, good DOF and an acceptable framing... perhaps has been interesting to see the entirety of the flower where it poses the butterfly.
question... why with elected POV, did you use F10 in this case?
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo
