|Hello from the Critique club
An excellent insect study that only partially meets the challenge
You have taken good control of the technicals to produce a very competent macro of the butterflyís head so very well done from that aspect. I like the square crop but given the nature of the subject, a beautifully coloured butterfly, a normal landscape orientated crop would have allowed you to include more of the butterfly. However, the challenge brief is flora, which means unfortunately, as good as it is, it detracts from what should be the main theme ie., the flowers themselves. Itís a shame this is not entered in a more appropriate challenge it would have done very well but itís excellent practice for such a future challenge.
So, having said all that Iím now going to ignore the butterfly and concentrate on the flower side of the image and I like what I see, the foreground bud is nice and focussed with a less than perfect flower head adjacent that is also nicely focussed with interesting detail. The foreground bud is soft together with the distant flower heads in the background which I really like I think they complete the image.
Your technical control of the camera is consistently improving Marcel but do try to think carefully of the challenge brief in your choice of subject.
