Lovely shot with excellent focus and depth of field. Like the way the depth of field draws attention to the butterfly's head and proboscis. Nice, too, that most of the flowers are out of focus and do not as a result detract from the main subject. The lighting is also very nice especially with the light the translucency of the wings of the butterfly and outlining its body. A very fine photo with a nice title.

Beautiful focus on the "lightness" although I think I would not have taken so much out of the flower. Having said that it is a stunning image - the colours are true and you capture the nowness of the moment. A lovely picture and a lovely subject - excellent!

Sorry, Jenny, when doing my admin tasks for In My Opinion it seems that my comment on this photo has not come through - I apologise for this and will try and recall what I said. Initially, I was of the view that it was not as strong as the other butterfly photo but that this one had other strengths in terms of the detail of the legs and body. This is no mean feat due to both the size of the creatures and their speed about the place - for this you should be commended. I think that I also said that the purple colour adds impact to the shot - it certainly does and competes for attention with the butterfly. Overall, a strong image.
