You came up with an interesting photo, and the butterfly's head and antennae look quite sharp.
Ohhh...this is beautiful! Really, the B/W is a nice refreshing change from the usual butterfly shots. Well done, Phil!
I like this, and you've caught the butterfly at an unusual angle and of course the B&W treatment is different in and of itself!
Nice contrast between the white flowers and dark butterfly. Another fabulous dark and moody shot!
Much different than a typical butterfly shot - perfect for the challenge that is Octoberfest. Really fine detail, especially for 1/50 sec!
I like your exposure and post processing choices.
The calm before the storm…
Although one might typically have the butterfly occupy most of the frame, your image does a nice job showing the context, which is important.
Thank you everyone. The butterfly is challenging, but also fun.Who would have thought BW butterfly shot, Phil! Nice.
