Nice image, unfortunately my eye keeps getting drawn to the light streak diagonally across the frame, probably a grass blade.

Very good Ron, you clearly know what you're talking about when it comes to these type of shots.
I love this picture of yours, you've captured all the colours on this butterfly so well and the d.o.f. is also spot on-nicely presented too.

Where did all the comments go?

This is a gorgeous shot! Not only is it an excellent background, complimentary flower and tack sharp, but also you got the proboscis nicely curled!

Very fine work!
