|Was taken in Close-Up Mode, only about 25cm away from the Butterfly. It was late in the afternoon, think it was sleeping! The Depth of field effect is exactly how I wanted it to show.|

Welcome to TL, Keith. Very nice first photo with a good choice of DOF(depth of field) and nice colours in the background that are a nice contrast to the butterfly. I like the upside-down look of the butterfly. I am wondering if the composition would have been better if you had not centered the butterfly both from an horizontal & vertical perspective but I am not certain as sometimes it is OK to break the rules. Well done!
Excellent shot, very demonstrative the DOF here, making the butterfly stand out so well.
Nice colours and detail too.
I did a Workshop just to try another look to this one. Hope you like.
Welcome to TL,
it's a beautiful shot - I love butterflies - special this cute little blue common.
I'm an enthusiastic insect-photographer, most of my shots are on TrekNature.
You made a good job, keep on doing this, I like it, bye

Splendid use of DOF in the images, the focus is really nicely placed on the butterfly (moth?) and the blur behind him/her really lets all the attention stand on the insect. Anyways, the colours are interesting because they almost seem desaturated, very subtle. Good spacing and an over-all pleasing image.
