[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was invited on a day trip to the Calgary Zoo with my son this summer and although there are pleny of animals to photograph I found myself in the butterfly house more than once. My son and I had a blast looking at all the butterflies, flowers and plants. I took a few pics while there and here is proof but that day was quality time spent with my boy.
I captured this pic by chance I was getting a picture of one of my favorite flowers when this little guy wanted to pose for me

Love the focus you have achieved in this beautiful butterfly, Christan!

Light is fantastic and exposure is just right.
Good sharpness and clarity with amazing contrast existing against a well blurred BG.
Nice work!

Hi Christan,

A wonderful composition with the butterfly and the flower, very nice détails and sharpness.
Splendid macro, I like very much the texture of the pétals and the perfect B/G.
My best regards , my friend.

> Stunning details in the insect!
Textbook quality, a very well framed scene
with the insect in focus on the blurred background...
The eye level point of view works well!
