Very nice details. The red background is rather unusual and works really well in combination with the butterfly's wings.

thank you for comments

Thank you, Jimmy. The red background actually is red colour leaf plants on the ground Cheers,

I too like the red Bg, was this staged or natural outdoors environment? how did you get a complete Red BG? nicely composed, the only minor nitpic is that the crop is too tight on the right where the small bulb got cut off a bit, all else is great TFS :D

thank you for comments

Thank, Qvee. It is natural outdoor environment definetly. At this 200mm focal length, you are able to get complete red or green depending on the background colour in this case red colour from leaf plants on the ground just right behind. Cheers, Patrick
