Nicely done. You can actually see the BODY of the bug - that's uncommon in butterfly shots. The colors are great, and your DOF is really nice too. In my top ten for the week. 9, just-married

Is this the best you can do with your fancy new camera? I guess it's good enough.

AWESOME! Text book perfect - as far as I'm concerned. Can't get above 10. PTL This is so refreshing. A shore 1st place - or should be.

Great capture!

Beautiful picture and beautiful butterfly/moth. It seems a little too bright, however. Probably shorter exposure would have helped a little.
11/12/2002 02:16:00 PM
Nice shot in focus, nice composition.
11/12/2002 01:22:00 PM
Beautifully composed and focused. The delicate flowers are a very nice element. Would like to hear about post-processing. 10 JEM

Nice composition and color, seems a bit fuzzy though.
11/11/2002 12:40:00 PM
I knew there would be flower pictures, and I knew there would be insect pictures (does this class as an insect?). Nevertheless this is an excellent photo. Great detail on the wings, would love to see the full size version next week.

DOF is good, colors are a little washed out.
11/11/2002 06:14:00 AM
