A paper kite butterfly (Idea leuconoe) at the Butterfly Garden at Stan Hywett Hall in Akron, Ohio.

I liked the stark colors of the wings and the branching pattern it made. The humidifying misters had just come on and the greenhouse was foggy when I took this photo.

great pic i'd like it more if it was cropped to emphasis on the butterfly

Great capture, but somehow "branch" is lost. I like the DOF too.

If the wings were to be the main subject then a tighter crop would have eliminated this confusion. As it is, the butterfly and the leafy brach it's resting on are fighting too much for attention.

A beautiful photograph, but more focus on the butterfly rather than the branch.

I love this picture, but it is a picture of a butterfly who just happens to be on a branch, and I don't think that ws the challenge.

Pretty!

Nice catch... beautiful butterfly, and the branch plays a stabilizing role here. 8 for now.

I wish there was more branch in this picture so that it could be on topic.

Nice shot, the overall sharpness is not as high though, and the color tone on the leaves are a bit grainy

great capture!

What an unusual butterfly. Looks almost like somebody painted paper! Very nice shot. I like the DOF very much.
