It has really been a while since I photographed a butterfly , probably more than 1.5 years. Nothing special , just a straight shot with my Nikkor 105mm at F20 , hand-held , noon lighting.

the more i look at this the better i like it .. things that i didnt notice in voting i notice now .. thought this would ribbon for sure .. i love the way the butterfly and his antennae form a line dividing the image in two .. i love the incredible details especially on his wings .. they look like the underside weave of a persian carpet .. i spose that's his proboscis coming out .. ? .. awesome shot .. :)

I've been saving for that lens but the non VR version...
Was this handheld or tripod? Helps if I read the photog's comments..

Detail is exceptional. A deeper DoF would be nice to get at least the foreground antennae in focus, as well as keeping the left midleg/tarsus in the frame.

detail in the wings is awesome. the only thing that detracts is the apple or fruit or whatever on the bottom. you cropped so much that now i want to see what this bug is eating.

great focus and technically sound photo.
