This is a very dynamic composition and of course the color and detail is great. I once watched a butterfly hatch but the window was far too smugged to take a clear photo.

Thank you for visiting and for the wonderful remarks, Bill, Sandi, Cassie, and Irene! They leave me smiling!

Irene, the window here was pretty smudged with stuff I couldn't wipe off with a tissue. I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't show up in the picture. Perhaps due to the large aperture and my close proximity to the window?

Lisa- You took one of the most beautiful and dramatic changes in nature and caught is so perfectly. This picture belongs in a magazine. What beauty and awe you have captured so expertly. This has to be displayed on a wall, in a magizine, somewhere where people can walk by and stop and see the beauty of nature.
marvelous work.
Have a most lovely day, take care, be safe.

G'day Lisa,

This is a most deceiving image.
At first viewing it seems like a rather minimalistic scene with the B&W butterfly and plain background but upon further investigtaion it holds quite a lot of very interesting detail.
Very well exposed in good light, lovely bokeh, sharp focus and a great composition.
Good work that girl!

A superb macro, Lisa, with fantastic clarity and outstanding composition!
That warm orange color is such a perfect backdrop for the pattern on the new-born b-fly. Easy to see how this earned an HM badge ~ it deserves any award it receives. Congratulations!
