Maybe not the best Red Admirial shot in the world (perhaps lacking some detail and maybe the composition is not quite top notch - dof is limited tending to give a slightly flat feel maybe) but this is an excellent example of how a flawed image can still work beautifully - its presentation is really well worked lifting the image helping to bring back some depth.

I really like this image and I think in part exactly because it is not perfect (Ok you can wipe me off your Christmas Card list!).

Your framing really makes this even more beautiful. We have had a shortage of butterflies here in Maine this year. Probably due to excessive summer rains. Hope they come back.

It is totally artistic in presentation which I reckon is why this works. How boring if all images were "perfectly posed" for only detail!
