Yesterday was really my first real attempt at capturing Butterflies. It's given me a much greater appreciation of those who capture truly excellent images of these beautiful creatures. I have a long way to go, but here's an example of what I came up with.

To my eye, the background is too cluttered and there's not enough contrast between the butterfly and the background. Also, I seemed unable to get the detailed clarity in the butterfly itself that I was hoping for. I have a lot to learn. I invite any input that might help me improve.

Thanks for checking out my work!
