Post-Processing: Converted from raw, cropped and resized (using Blow-up3)       Extra Info: Fear of butterflies.

The savagery of nature can be chilling. Lepidopterophobes remind us that were it not for the advent of long sleeve shirts, we would all be completely exposed to the rabid butterfly hordes fluttering about.

Guess who will be laughing last when our bones are picked clean by voracious butterfly proboscises?

    I love the colors and the sharpness. Very well done, although I have not met anyone afraid of these lovely creatures.

    Thanks for the link - fun to read :-)
Love the shot especially the blue framing effect.

    I like butterflies! This one looks like the color is too muted. Perhaps it is poorly fed. Parts of the insect look noisy.

    I find it hard to believe that something so beautiful could conjure up a phobia. Lovely shot.

    Rather than fear of butterflies, the colorful flowers direct my attention to the beauty of the creature instead.

    A little more vibrancy in the color and less graininess would bring this to life more. I do appreciate being alerted to the bloodthirstiness of butterflies. ;)
