I have become somewhat obsessed with butterflies these last few months but have only managed a handful of half-decent shots.
This is (I think) a Malay Lacewing, which had recently emerged from its pupa.

I have sharper versions of this shot but I think you'll agree this has the more pleasing light and overall composition. (see v2)

Always happy to get your honest critique and opinions.

Regards,

Steve.

Two great Macro shots like the carpet effect of the colours.

Thanks everyone. I'm pleasantly surprised how this has been received especially given the amazing quality of some of the butterfly shots here.
