Incredible shot, there may be a small amount of motion blur at the tip of the wings, but who cares?? Excellent shot! :-)

yes it was taken under some difficult lighting, glad the motion blur to the wings tip does not affect it too much
thank you

I absolutely love this picture!!! Are the butterfly's wings really see through? Or does the color just match that much? I have never seen anything like it!

:3 I knew they were real, I was asking if they were see through or if they just matched the green color that well. XD
