About the Image(s)

I am so happy that the seasons have changed so the butterflies, dragonflies and birds are everywhere! This was a close up of a butterfly that I found interesting because of his eyes.

This is a great macro shot, I love the eyes!! I don't know why nature created eyes in an insect that look like they have pupils. The only change I might consider is to remove the out of focus flower in the background, to me it is a distraction.   Posted: 05/10/2022 18:44:33

Hi Julia,

Your image is breathtaking. I love the eye, the tips of the antennae, the sharpness and detail where it counts, and your attention to the background and not overdoing the vignette. It all makes for an outstanding image.   Posted: 05/12/2022 11:52:13

I love the butterfly. It is breathtaking. What a capture and those eyes. Well seen. I would like to see the flower toned down emphasizing the butterfly and would also remove the out of focus flower.   Posted: 05/21/2022 19:00:31
