    The colour is great, so saturated. Great abstract, I wouldn’t have known it to be a butterfly if it wasn’t mentioned.

    Thanks Hien, I’m stoked you called it abstract LOL! I didn’t want to do a straight forward butterfly shot (although I did one in the end as a request).

    The up close detail is great and the color is beautiful.

    Thanks funkyfacestudio, I must admit I was happy with the detail that came through. I hadn’t realised the darker patches on the wings weren’t just scales as well until these photos! They really shine in the light too; they’re gorgeous.
