Well exposed Sylvia and detail where required but just needs that extra on the dof. Time to practice these Friday

Super shot Sylvia. Lovely colourful creature caught on an excellent BG. DOF will always be difficult with close focus like this and an angled POV. The only way really is to stand square behind the butterfly and try to get it on a perfectly flat plane. Hope they perform for you on Friday.

I appreciate the difficulty of the conditions but the depth of field is a bit too shallow on this one. You might be able to get away with it if most of the near wing was sharp but that's asking a lot.
