I really expected this to place higher. I thought this was a blue ribbon for sure.

You can crop some of the left which is empty and doesn't add much... also having the left moves to butterfly to center, cropping can place it to a third and ehnace the composition

Title matches perfectly, love the lighting and colors.

So close to being a brilliant picture. Needs a bit of sharpness, a little less light and more space above the butterfly.

Good capture. Extremely hard to get and even harder to get the butterfly in real sharp focus but this is quite acceptable and the rest of the composition is good.

Good catch. Maybe croping of the left side would make better composition.

Great capture. You had excellent timing on this one. Focus and composition are good. You see a lot of photos of moths/butterflies that have already landed, but not too many of them on approach so to speak. Good Luck!

This is an absolute <10>! Outstanding shot! Superb stop action, DOF, colors, details, texture...I can't say enough about it. I'll be VERY disappointed if this doesn't ribbon. Wow! The space on the left side is begging for some action, perhaps cropping just a "little" off would great, but definitely not taking any points off for it! Lovely shot - makes my Fav list.

7 - Nice. Good 'catch'/perspective/angle. Criticism; 'if only' that body, legs, etc were in sharp focus - but likely camera/lens dependent - but with that fine bokeh I wonder. The 'softness' is nice, but the focus on the 'fly' as is on the flowers, and again, 'sharper', would have made this much better in my opinion. Perhaps also a little more space (depending what you had to work with) above, and perhaps a slight rotation/adjustment and different crop, not sure, may have also made this even better. edit:typos
