Not sure if I used too much flash?

Nice close-up, love the detail, but it is a bit soft?

Thanks Eric, I agree about it being a bit soft Nadia, I think it's due to the file compression, it started out as a 1.5Mb image and I think reducing it to just under 60k has led to losing some of the sharpness and clarity. Thanks for commenting.

Whilst the subject is a little intruded upon by the twigs etc - it really is a smashing shot of the butterfly especially the wings - I think the flash has given them a really nice quality - doesn't look too soft to me !!

It may be another butterfly shot, but it's one of stunning detail, and so crisp and clean.

Beautiful shot, superb detail and colour. It would be worth getting rid of or blurring the background but that would just be the icing on the cake.

This is just wonderful, I love the details we see in these butterfly close-ups, something which I never seem to get the opportunity to do in real life.
