Wonderful shot, Linda, really has impact and a high "wow" factor! The sharpness on the butterfly and the spiky wotsit are just excellent. Looks like perfect exposure as well and a great background. One to be proud of!

Got to support what Richard just wrote. It will save me to repeat the same (^_^).
I prefer this one to yesterday's post.
Well done !

Colors, Lighting, sharp details are all gơod.
I just wonder why using f/7.1, you still had a great blurry BG.
Have a nice hang out today, Linda

A very beautiful capture of this stunning looking butterfly. I like the great clarity in the entire photo and the spot on sharpness on the b'fly and flower. The DOF is extreemly well chose and gave the BG a nice soft texture. I also like the freshness of the BG and how it contrasts with the b'fly. If I do have to nit pick, it is that the focus just fell away on the body and head. If those were also as sharp as the wings, the photo would be even more perfect.

Lovely, a wonderful nature shot. As Niek mentioned, perhaps a slightly smaller aperture to get pin-sharpness on the head, but that's not a big problem here. Very nice color contrasts and the background bokeh is excellent.

Excellent focus on the subjects and great details.
Very good light and beautiful blurred BG.
I like your composition,with the butterfly & one flower, being the main subjects,the position of both, really grab ones attention. I find the colours of both,are very natural, with good details & sharpness. I'm not sure how far away you were from your subjects but the f/7.1 aperture sure gave you a perfect softer background. I like the darker green leaf behind the main flower it tends to make the image more dimensional than a normal photo. May I ask what type of flower it is, that attracts the butterfly,may put one in the backgarden to see if we can entice some Monarchs to visit :-)

This is so exquisite...
Amazing capture Linda, the flower-pod is so sharp, and so is the beautiful butterfly.
I like how the lighting seems to emphasises them both too.
Well done MF

Ha, Ha, sounds like a busy w/e, Linda!!
Don't know how you had time to post this, though I'm glad you did! It's very good! The butterfly and its flower are sharp, well positioned and stand out in a 3-D way from the pleasing oof b/g.
My warmest regards,
