Taken at The Butterfly Place in Westford, MA

Post processing- levels, color, hue/sat and curves with assorted masks to emphasize the butterfly and burn the background a bit. USM, resize and save as JPG.

I like the shades of green in the background. The butterfly needs to be a tad bit sharper, IMO.
