If it weren't for dsidwell i would've never known that was a moth! I've never seen such a colorful moth.
I like the border... but there's a spot just above the right wing that bothers me.
Aloha

Actually, that's a moth! (But I'll keep that a secret). The border here distracts me just a tad, but the photo is very nice. Composition is very good.

Ugly border, decent subject and lighting. I wish the focus gave more blur, but it's hard to do digitally (maybe use a telephoto lens?). Ugly bord... oh wait, I said that. :) 7

Don't like the border. Not a particularly good choice of border esp for this photo as it is crowding the left antenna. It should have sufficient breathing room except for the border. I hate marking down for them, but this one has gone too far.

Holy smokes. Great capture of the butterfly, lovely color, good design. Then that border! It detracts terribly! I passed this photo by several times, not wanting to like what's featured. When I finally dragged my eyes from the border, I LOVE the photo. (Hate the border though. Sorry.) It should be a 9, but ... 7.

The detail of your frame pulls the eye away for the detail of the butterfly. Nice capture of the butterfly. Perhaps just a little sharper. I have tried numerous times to photograph a butterfly but I have yet to be successful. I even went to a butterfly exhibition and came back empty. So, I am very impressed with this shot.

Nice shot. I like that the details are visible on the butterfly, and the colors are good as well.

Just a side note (and doesn't effect the score) -- I think this border kinda detracts from the image. The inconsistent shape draws the eyes away from the butterfly, I think. But that is just my opinion

Beautifully captured but I don\'t like the border, also is that dirt on the lens just to the right of the head? Times like those I wish for more editing.

The frame is a bit to heavy for my taste.

Very , very nice. I have mixed feeeling about the frame. Sort of draws me away from the butterfly. Also, less space on the left. And clean your lens!!!! Still got a hig mark from me.

Beautiful shot, i'd really like to know how you did your border.

That border hurts my eyes. The picture itself is great. (4)

This could have scored so much more from me without that terrible border. I can't tell you how much it spoils your photo by distracting the eye. Stop it! Perhaps a little less dof to blur the leaves a little more would have helped. 8
