    I don"t think I have ever seen one with that coloration, very cool. Have you played with a different crop and maybe a rotation? I think there is a stronger image lurking there.

    There isn't a lot wrong with the basic settings, Peter. But I just wonder if the butterfly would look 'happier' with a 90 degree rotation and a slight crop, as Paul said.

    That looks a lot more natural, Peter.

    I notice that the background now seems a bit 'noisy'. If you find that the 'auto noise reduction' software isn't desirable here, I sometimes clean up my wildlife shots by 'painting' over the problem areas with the Blur tool. Vary size and opacity to suit.
