Maybe should have brightened it up a little and given slightly more contrast. Great shot anyway, I really like the DOF with the out of focus flowers around.

Nice and crisp on the left wing, but not on the eyes or other wing. Lacks color fidelity. The ugly, dead-looking flower in the background on the left needs to go. I don't agree with the "no spot retouching" rule for stuff like that.

Nice shot, would a tighter crop eliminate some of the distracting background?

Very nicely done. I'd crop a bit more

Good composition. I think the coloring could be enhanced.

Pretty colours, and good dof. The texture of the thistle also adds interest. Good job.

Very nice shot, good DOF. I might have cropped it a little tighter, but that's just me. Good luck.

I think that cropping the dead thistle head on the left would have made this a stronger image...cropping as you shot it, I mean, so that you don't lose the tails of the swallowtail...nice light

Pretty. Nice muted tones in the subject, flower and background. Would like to see the butterfly more head-on though.
