Allen, your image brings me a calm and soothing feeling. The colors are very pleasing, especially with the soft BG. The sharpness throughout the whole image is fantastic. Having the perspective you used allows you to get the entire butterfly in one focus plane. I truly do not see anything I can offer to make this image any better. You have yourself a beautiful image here indeed.

Allen, I agree with @Egidio that the image brings a calm and soothing feeling. Wonderful details in the BF. I too cannot think of a thing that might improve it. Well done.

That is a perfect photo image, Allen. The background color and softness did very well. The butterfly is very beautiful and color very rich.

Beautiful, Allen, and the yellow flower works well with both the butterfly and the background.

All said above – simple and elegant, with a lovely specimen!
