Wowsers - I've never heard of such a thing. I just wish that flower wasn't behind him like that.

Composition/Crop = Great
Lighting = Great
Color = Good (I am guessing the flower color is bleeding thru because his wings are flapping so fast, makes it interesting)
Creativity = Good
Concept/Story = Great (I had not seen one of these before)
Focus/DOF = Great (I like how you have movement on the wings and yet such clarity. I'm not sure I could pull that off yet, myself)
Subject = ok (The subject is not purple, though he appears to be here. Its a little confusing since this isn't his true colors.)
Wow Factor = Good
Marketability = Good (Not being the true color would effect this factor)

Overall I found this image interesting since I haven't seen this moth before. He has great markings.

Good capture. I see a lot of these around the house but haven't been able to get a good picture yet. Nice job.

too over processed to me. They aren't even close purple in nature.
