thats a lovely image but i think the lens flare is a bit of a distraction. Try cropping or cloning the flare out the stem is a lovely shape but nice pic
its just a suggestion on my part, not a judgment...ron

Top quality as expected, Tim. The detail not just in the butterfly but also in the flower head is a joy.

Great to see you back with your marvellous photos of butterflies. Disappointing for me though, as having the same combination of kit that you took this shot with now means there is no excuse for me not to achieve similar excellence; however, my 100mm lens doesn't have USM so that could be the reason for my failuresWink. Look forward to seeing more. Chris

Super shot Tim and well deserved potw! Superb composition and lighting.

Good to see you posting again and I see the meet up in spring encouraged you to point the camera at the butterflies some more Smile

Things are starting to start in the UK now. Saw my first two brimstones of the year on Sunday. Won't be long now before the orange tips are about hopefully!!!

Looking forward to Spring, we've all had enough of the rain, even down here.
