I need to find out when the caterpillars are around and where to find them that turn into these beautiful creatures, i saw it fluttering around in the undergrowth while i was out bug hunting this morning so took some time out to record it, even at F9 the right wing is a little out of focus at the tip, oh well.

You are being a little picky about a beautiful image. This is perfectly lovely. Others will agree. For f9 the DOF does seem narrow. You even softened the background. Wow! TG

A beautiful butterfly, the markings and colours quite spectacular: the OOF right wing top does not really detract to my way of thinking.

Looks like a Common Buckeye. Lovely markings but the dof does look strange from the angle you're at.

I did soften the background in post processing to try to bring the butterfly out more, and looking back at it now i can see where i need to be more careful, my selection should have been tighter on the top of the right wing, overall though i am pleased with this.

thankyou all for your comments

Terry.

No reason why you should not be pleased with it, a good macro shot! insects move about! working with a narrow dof is not easy but at least your out in the field, not got something half frozen from the fridge to play with in studio conditions like some. as to digital art do some of each like I do!; then people do not get bored with the same old thing all the time, cheers and best of luck, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
