[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in new Foundland whilst on holidays. I had been shooting scenery and so had my 18-250 lens on when this butterfly landed in front of me. I didnt feel that I had time to change my lens to a close up lens so I shot with the 18-250. I was fairly pleased with the result.

This is a nice shot with good sharpness and clarity, however, a bit busy I think, David!

I have tried a WS, hoping you don't mind.
Light and exposure are well maintained on the butterfly against those lovely flowers.
Colors are natural and contrasts are amazing.
Nice work!

Best wishes,

Ciao David, great macro of fantastic butterfly on beautiful flowers, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi David,
A fine capture of this butterfly sitting on these little white flower. A sharp macro but plenty of waste space on the left. I think Paras has presented a good WS. Quite a good result with an 18-250mm zoom lens.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi David,

Great shot of this butterfly from a rather difficult angle. It looks to be a Red Admiral(Vanessa atalanta) and if so not an easily approachable species at all. Thus your zoom may well have been opportune in this particular encounter and ultimate capture. Well taken!
