I caught this one in my backyard yesterday; I couldn’t understand what is up with this butterfly. She just kept on flying and flying around a plant in my backyard until eventually she went too sat down on it, then I discovered that she were busy laying her eggs. This photo was the best of round about 19.

This is one of my best photos so far, any advice or something i did wrong with this one ?

Hope you enjoy this. Smile

Beautifully sharp where it needs to be and nicely composed. The only technical flaw is that it's rather over-exposed, which means that a lot of his fur has blown out to featureless white. Still works very well, though.

As David says, the focus and composition are both good. It is over-exposed, as are one or two of your other photographs. I don't know if you are using the camera on auto or manual but either way check to see what metering option you have selected, centre weighted is usually best. If you have the camera on auto practice using exposure compensation, on manual try under-exposing a little by using a slighty faster shutter speed. My camera has a tendancy to over-expose and either of these techniques work for me.

Get to know your camera, keep trying and you will very soon be producing some really good images, you have made a very good start.
