    That one's pretty too, but I find the change in sharpness from the butterfly to the flower rather jarring.

    Thanks for looking and commenting Toriaj. That was a difficult task to maintain the BG even and bringing the butterfly and the flower in critical focus. I could get only the butterfly in that shot. Here is one more shot with flower in full focus and part of the butterfly. Some compromise is always needed.

    Oh, I like this 2nd one much better. Very nice. I don't think it works as well to have part of the subject significantly out of focus when the background is completely washed out.

    Yes I agree too it's a brilliant shot. Only minor suggestion might be to blur the flower stem slightly over the lighter left hand part in PP to make it look like it emerges from the background into sharp focus.

    That's a great bee shot. Do you know how to resize and post directly to the thread so that your picture shows up?
