Commonly called a Julia, this butterfly is native to the Lesser Antilles islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Carribean.

Image was rotated and cropped. It had selective color applied to better bring out yellow and lavender. Brightness/contrast was adjusted. Neat Image used to reduce background noise and a bit of USM applied as a final touch.

great detail on the 'fly but you could pay a bit more attention to the backgrounds. The yellow spots in particular distract

Excellent, I love this! It makes a nice change from the usual side-view that people choose when taking pictures of butterflies.

You did a great job focusing, because the wings are in focus and the petals are not the butterfly is the main subject even thought my eye is drawn to the petals of the flower first. Also, the pink shadows the orange nicely. Nice choice on the diagonal composition as well.

This is really good but it would have been great with a clean backdrop - so difficult to do outside.
