Pretty uninspiring comments so far, so let me try to address that...

I quite like the point of view here, but the butterfly is (for me) looking out of the frame a bit too much. If it had been possible I would have tried to make myself more parallel with its profile view.

There are technical issues with lack of sharpness and quite excessive noise. The composition could also be improved if the butterfly and its perch weren't quite so central - shunt it all to the right hand side of the frame and it would become far more balanced and with the butterfly looking into the newly created space on its left. What is good is the unfussy background so a point for that! Smile

Where on the range of the lens was it taken?

Regards,
Matt
