Aging Butterfly

Aging Butterfly

This tiny (less than 1cm long) butterfly was standing at the tip of a branch, just waiting for me to take a photo. Naturally, I had to oblige. With the sunlight coming from behind, it lighted up and provided an awesome portrait. Note that this Butterfly is pretty old now - the wings have tears in them. Not that this hindered its ability to fly away when it wanted...

What do I like about this photo? The lighting really makes the Butterfly shine. The pose at the tip of the branch is also great. The distance of the background blurs it out completely, making the Butterfly really stand out. The amount of details is very good.

What would I want to improve? I should have closed the aperture more to get a deeper depth of field so the entire Butterfly would have been in focus.
