Orange Butterfly, Yellow Flower

Orange Butterfly, Yellow Flower

Sometimes nature provides us with the perfect artistic moments. Like this one, for example, where an orange butterfly stands on a yellow flower with the sun shining through them, and the background is green for good contrast. Note also the good amount of details you can see on the head and body of the butterfly!

What do I like about this photo? It's very, very clean, with the background completely blurred out and the butterfly and flower in good focus. I used an open aperture to achieve this shallow depth of field. The amount of details is also very good, getting us really up close and personal with the butterfly. The lighting is good, coming from behind and lighting up the butterfly and flower a bit.

What would I want to improve? Maybe a bit more of a backward lighting would have been even more impressive.
