Good morning Larry.
Wonderful lighting,colours and exposure. Great definition and textures set against that blurred BG. I may have been tempted to clone or crop out the blurred red flower on the top. My eye is drawn to that rather than the subject. Great job! Joni

Excellent sharpness and colour, good depth of field and nicely blurred background. All the better for using natural light.

Hiya Larry


sorry to go with the majority here but I also agree with the flower at the top being a tad distracting, however aside from that this is a really stunning shot with magnificent colour and details.


Thank you for posting
kind regards Helen

Lovely sharp colours here Larry,but sorry i have to go with the others on the flower at the top. I think i would have preferred either cloned out or cropped.

Good details and frame filling color Larry.
Looks like a tiger swallowtail..
Had some rare snowfall again today, spend a couple of hours shooting the birds-n-snow. May not have it again for quite awhile.

Oh my! That butterfly certainly picked the perfect setting for you to get it's portrait on! Very nice detail and clarity!
