Peculiar butterfly, thanks for sharing.

I am not sure how much image quality would be lost if instead of ISO100 you used ISO400. I see the maximum ISO of the camera is 6400. I say until ISO800 pictures would not suffer from "noise" isues.

Then f/16 is waaay too much, Apart from the butterfly on the forefront the leafy background furthest is not necessary to be sharp. An open aperture around f/5.6 of f/8 would give you as sharp result on the butterfly.

What the closed iris of the lens did was to cause the flash to fire producing a very harsh light with strong shadows. It made the empty space between leaves to be pitch black as if you have shot this at past midnight rather than at 4 o'clock in the afternoon during summer.

Compare the camera settings other butterfly photographers shoot with by using the main gallery, choose then "all pictures" and then filter by the tag butterflies.
