Beautifully shot. With macro it is easy to get carried away with all the details that one can see and forget about composition, but this image is perfectly composed, showing off your subject to the best advantage. The balance of subject and negative space is spot on and emphasises the striking markings with good strong eyepaths through all areas of the image.
Well done!

One of my favorites subjects! Very nicely cropped here. Perhaps boost the levels a bit?

I did just now. It's fantastic. Your camera captured the little cells on the butterflies wings and body; it's almost like what you'd see under a 10x loupe. That is some wonderful shooting! :nod:

Hey Deviant...
Your awesome, and it's been recognised, I'm ==cross-rocker, and I'm part of a project over at =Deviant-Underground to promote underappreciated artists, and share their art with our watchers, each day three pieces are featured in the club journal, and the same journal posted to all the daily members, who post the same journal in their journals, each saturday the 5 favourite deviations from that week are posted again, and that journal sent to a different list of members, then those deviations are put into a poll, and by the next week, the deviation with the most votes is submitted to the clubs gallery with comments disabled and a link to the orignal. so eventually, when the project gets bigger, then that should have a huge effect on the featured deviations comments and favourites...

Anyway, today your piece was featured at [link]
Enjoy the little bit of attention.
