    Love the butterfly and the bokeh. Too bad some of the buds have blown highlights. The focus on the butterfly is good, but could be sharper. Still high in my favs!

    Thanks for the great comments. This was the most accommodating butterfly ever - kept coming back to the flower time and again. Neil, I did try a rotation on the photo, but the way the flowers sloped made it look awkward.

    Very nice shot and very good colour combo. I think it might be better rotated 90 degrees? GL.

    Good picture of the Monarch. The orange colors are matching. In my favorites.

    Quite lovely in composition and framing, good bokeh in the background, and just a great palette overall. Vying for my top pick with the frog. Technically well done with the focus and sharpness, and you have managed a hint of sun in the eye which I always look for otherwise wildlife with black eyes looks quite dead.

    While not a perfect match of colors, the capture is outstanding. Razor sharp and beautifully composed. Congratulations.

    Sharply focused, good DoF, and right on theme.

    Dang, this is exactly the type of image I was hoping for. I spent several hours at the botanical garden but very few butterflies and even fewer flowers...

Congrats, very high in my TT.

    Lovely shot that fits the theme well. Your depth of field use is very nice.
