    I found the subtle colour matching did not detract from the photo as it sometimes does. I presume this is some kind of butterfly bait you have prepared. Excellent shot.

    Beautiful creatures. I think less of the fruit and more of the butterfly would improve an already attractive entry.

    Lovely colour butterflies but the grapes and fly are a bit off-putting. GL.

    Nicely captured. At first I thought you were comparing the colours of the two butterflies, but the soft blue on the wings really matches the blue berries. The background detracts a bit. In my faves.

    Babysister, I made a butterfly bar by arranging the plums on a board, crushed them a little and began to wait for butterflies. I took several photos and this picture I liked most, but the upper border of the picture was too near the butterflies. So I copied to the picture more background from another picture. I had to soften the border of the old and new parts of the background by PP.

    Am I right in suspecting a bit of arranging for the foreground and pp for the background. Whether you did or not I think it is very good and I love the blues.

    the title helped but a great result.

    It fits the theme and is well timed, maybe a little grainy, but beautifully simple in composition. The second smaller butterfly/moth plays a secondary role which is good though I do wish this could have been rendered larger but Panachallenge limits the entry dimensions (I'd like to see this full size).

    The subtle blue of the butterfly matches quite nicely with the main subject. Great capture.

    I'm not sure what the blue things are (old grapes?) but I find them unattractive and distracting. The butterfly is beautiful though.

    The lighter blues do work well with the spots on the right-hand butterfly (or is it a moth?), but I am more struck by the deep red on both insects. Very nice, either way.
