    Magic! Where's the string
    Lovely shot Allen great composition back ground and colours. You have depicted the butterfly beautifully, I am sure it wasn't easy to get but your persevere paid off - well done. The detail in both flower and butterfly is top notch.

    Wow! Amazing to get both the flower and the butterfly in perfect focus. Nice colors. I hope to learn do this one day.

    I like this one better than the sulphur. At the least I would suggest adding 90 points of CYAN to the RED to tone down the enamel-like detail-less petals ... If that did not work I would go back to the RAW and reduce the RED luminance on the HSL tab during the RAW conversion.I love the sharpness of the butterfly and the shape of the proboscis.

    with love, arite
