Sweet shot, dude. Gorgeous bokeh! I like your blatant disregard for the rule of thirds, too, as your subject is in the extreme corner of the frame (I've always secretly hated the rule of thirds). Well done. Congrats on top 20.

Top 20...you go boy! You must have been laying in the sand with him, hope the camera was well protected.

Wonderful image. The simplicity rocks!

Very cool! I love the gradiation of the background and the way you chose to compose this. Ordinarily, I might question the butterfly facing out of the corner of the frame but it doesn't bother me here. Well done.

Nice composition - breaks the rules but works for me. Nice progression from sharp foreground to extreme blur at the back.

Nice shot very well executed. The composition is just phenominal. Just love it. (10)

Superb composition and colours and strong DOF. 8.

I like. And the bokeh suits it, just like this Panda-skin coat suits my bald eagle slippers. 8.

Very cool butterfly, and I am a guy that doesn't like butterflies. If I did, this would be the one I would like to look at.

almost too perfect. can't tell if you blurred after or if that is just DOF. great pic either way.

Very nice, although I think it might have been better if the butterfly was facing into the frame rather than away.

I love the feel of the bokeh here! well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

LOVE this!! Probably the most perfect for the challenge I've seen yet.

beautiful composition for this shot! the green pond or whatever it is makes the butterfly that much more interesting - it gives a time and place to its flight!

Back for comments...Nice shot! Subject is tack sharp & the background is very smooth. For some reason it reminds me of a fighter jet with the background obscured in the jet-wash. 10

I wish the butterfly was on the left side of the frame. It seems to be going out. Great image nonetheless.

Nice one here...

The bokeh in this photo looks photoshopped...if im wrong im wrong and I apologize...but it looks fake so I have to vote that way.

Striking butterfly. Focus and DOF are spot-on. Lovely BOKEH. The butterfly is uncomfortably close to the edges, IMHO; but I really love this shot.
