It's really worn for so early in the season.

Hey Ken, I love the subject and the details, comp, but the BG is to contrasty and taking away from the subjects for my taste.

I agree with Mike. I think if you could tone down the spot directly behind the wings that would help tremendously. The butterfly itself is FANTASTIC! Lovely turn and angle and such sharp details where they need to be. Lovely image if the BG were a little less eye-catching.

Ken, The Lilac and the BF are beautiful. Agree w/ BG . I like the details on the wing.:)

Ken apart from the bg not being ideal this is a really beautiful image. The combination of the lilac and butterfly is just wonderful and the colours divine.:)
