Thank you all for your great comment on on my last picture.This is the first time I have tried to put a back ground in a picture,so be kind to meSad It has taken me all night then found out I had lost half the leg of the butterflySad I Have managed to clone it back in. I have had this picture over a year but never liked the background so never put it on site..Lin

Strikes me you have done a fine job with the b/g, Lin: and I don't know how you have managed it but the butterfly seems to me to be standing out from my screen in 3D.
Very fine bit of photography and processing.
Ronnie.

The pale background colour you chose works just fine and the image is great so we have no choice but to be kind. TG

A delightful image Lin.
And I bet the butterfly is delighted too,
that you gave him his half leg back !!

A fabulous close up of this small copper butterfly, I haven't seen one yet this year. Dreaming of summer eh Lin? You've only had to wait six years, I think there is more chance of the England Football team actually winning something than us of ever seeing summer again!Sad
