You never cease to impress me, Ed. Not only do you recognise all the different butterflies, you tell us what they are having for breakfast/lunch/dinner, and you manage to capture them all so well.

Very well captured. Good strong composition and natural colours. It doesn't detract but might be an issue if printed there appears to be evidence of either over-sharpening or the need for some work on digital noise. The background whilst presenting a lovely bokeh effect could IMHO do with some noise reduction. This is common with hand held shots where a high ISO has had to be used to secure a fast shuttered speed and therefore a sharper image. It is a regular trade off which is only made easier the more expensive the camera or if it is full frame. I generally have to tackle noise in most of my shots even when taken at ISO 100. Regards
