Lovely delicate combination, beautifully shot!

It might draw our attention to the butterfly more if the grass were less straight in the picture... perhaps you could rotate a little to give a slight angle and even zoom in a touch also.

Well done!

I like the grass flower with the butterfly which make for a nice delicate image.
I agree with Tim. I think I see what you have tried to do( and it's all subjective anyway )but a slight rotation diagonal might help. The wing edges look a little blown too. Could they be retrieved in post proccessing?
Well done
Julian

Thanks everyone for your comments, the original image was infact with the butterfly pointing downwards on the grass, and it didnt show the butterfly off how i wanted it, but i am going to give your suggestion a try, many thanks,

Your butterfly just came up on the Featured E2 Photo. It is very similar to the Silver Studded Blue that I've just uploaded, but do they have a relationship with the ants like the Studded Blue? I'm not sure, I think it may be unique to the Studded Blue.
