Fine macro shot, Ed, the detail captured so precise. Stands out so well from the pastel b/g greens, and almost as if in 3D.
Very well done and if I may say so one of your best.

Good stuff Ed but IMHO it looks just a tad over-sharpened, otherwise perfect!

Beautiful soft colours with some great detail here Ed, I assume by your comments that Gary_D has a frog phobia?

Best Matt

A wonderful Blue butterfly - didn't know ther were that many varities.
I too thought it a litle oversharpened having spend an afternoon editing
some of my own and trying not to overdo it.
so hard to get just right!!

Very difficult not to oversharpen these, but this is oversharpened, I agree with Ade, and Ive loaded a mod with less sharpening. Could well be a little too much less, but you can at least see it makes quite a difference. I would also crop to place the Butterfly on a third. try not to use those borders that are the same as the dominant colour as the shot, - they dont work well. The purpose of a border is to frame, meaning indicate the edge of a shot, and these ones done do that. Ive includes a different frame in the mod to show what I mean.

Good effort though at 300mm.

An excellent shot Ed - there don't seem to be so many butterflies around this year or is it me

No there aren't, you have to look hard to find the ones that are around, there have been nothing like the numbers in previous years
