Absolutely exquisite. I love the composition - wonderful detail, velvety textures and iridescent blues of the butterfly's wings in direct contrast with the roughly textured rope perch and softly blurred blue/green bg tones. Love it!

Looks very good to me. Every time I've tried to do anything like that the butterflies are always to quick for me. (Perhaps its something to do with them having a bigger brain than me!)
I think that I will have to try super glue. Only joking about the glue that is not the brain. Sad Wink

The delicacy of the wings against the rough texture of the rope works very nicely, as do the colours. Super shot Linda. Congrats on the UA.

How did you get the butterfly to give you this ideal pose? Did you pay, did you seduce whatever it was it worked. A super shot, I am green with envy.

It is much easier if you're not terrified of them but I know that's not much help. Beautiful shot, though — you've managed to control your quaking very well. Wink
