I couldn't resist -- either taking it -- or entering it because the little fellow was so pretty and perfectly formed, and he did in fact look so still there waiting for the flower to open. I watched him for a long time, and he didn't budge. . .I think certain that that particular flower was "the" one, and worth waiting for.

Congrats on your high placement Sandy. This is such a sharp photo with really beautiful colors. And hey, I like the border, but then I've had a few border comments myself. Good job!

Another lovely entry, Sandy! The background is absolutely perfect and really flatters this little butterfly. Great job!

great capture - the border may overpower the image (in size) - one of my favorites this challenge

the blend of natural colors does very good in this, Sharpness is perfect without any halo effect which on antenna are hard to do. well done.

I think the wide white border detracts from the image, but I'm not considering that in the score. It is a lovely capture with excellent focus.

Very pretty, good still capture, enviable sharpness on plant and butterfly. I love the dark (but not black) background.

Nice technically but no real wow factor.

The quietness and stillness of this image is just amazing! You nailed it!!
I feel like I can reach out and touch that butterfly and flower bud- the clairity and focus makes them look so real. The dark backgroud just adds to the stillness of the image giving it a nice peaceful feel. BRAVO!! 10

I like the picture, but I don't like the border. It's distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot, but the frame is a litle bit to thick for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Enchanting! Love this one...so pure, clear & definitely 'Still!'
*10*
