Just went out to get some fresh air in the morning and I noticed butterflies are everywhere... I rush inside to get my camera and I end up chasing them the whole morning.... I thought it was easy... you should have a sneaky feet and quick fingers to capture such a beautiful creature.... this one is my first butterfly … I made some pp here… sharpened it a little and screened the background to make the subject stand out a bit… I failed to achieve the desired dof, I’m 2 meters away from the subject….

Beautiful picture and I don't agree that you failed the DOF its very good. I like that you see only three leafs of the flower wher the butterfly is sitting on. Nice composition and also nice colors. Because the background is blury , DOF becomes very good.
