I think this is a Common Blue, I hope you like it
Beautiful softness to the image. Great colour and DOF.You're correct, it's a male Common Blue.
I love the pastel colours and the sharpness of the butterfly. The texture is great.
Agree about the pastel colours. Nice shot.
I'm not normally atracted to insect shots but I was drawn by the beautiful colour of the butterfly against the bright yellow of the flower. No idea what it is but very well captured - lovely detail too.
lovely shot dan
Absolutely stunning image!!!!
as per other comments about softness and the dof - good shot shaun
Great shot, this is the kind of DOF I'm going to have to try for in my insect shots. -click-
The light has a very nice soft quality in this, for me it works really well.
Beautiful shot, great detail and comp.
brilliant shot ...
love the contrasting colours
Wonderful photo - like the pastel tones.
You're really getting away from the distracting background as described in comments on your previous posts. I like this shot very much. The time spent at Fairburn was worth it after all! Gary
Nicely detailed, really like the contrast with the flower.
Dan, the background is so complimentary on this shot! It's always a great combination when they land on something yellow also!
It looks like the levels were not adjusted though, did you just upload this straight from the camera? You could make it look much more eye-catching if you up the contrast a little.
Top notch shot, color and detail are superb, love that you can actually see the fine hairs on its back! Spot on! Click!!!
Have to agree with Tims comments, superb capture otherwise!
Thanks everyone for your kind comments and thanks Tim and Ade for the constructive criticism.
This is as from the camera, I'd did have a play with levels but in the end decided the pastel effect was nicest. Personal taste I suppose, wouldn't do for us all to be the same.
I miss your work sometimes, but not anymore
Personally I like the muted colours of this Dan, the butterfly itself is "strong" enough, so I agree with you, it's fine just as it is Cracking good shot!
Your work gets better and better, great detailed capture, nice colours and excellent
I love the pastel colours and the diagonals in the composition.
I think the colors here are great. They have an appealing subdued freeling to them.
Beautifully composed with great colour
