This is a beautiful shot!! I love that you decided to go with black and white because the contrast and value is amazing, especially with that butterfly!!! The wings look so close to being transparent! It really adds a delicacy to the view. You have the strong center of the butterfly then these beautiful decorative wings. I love it. You have such a great eye!

Thank you so kindly! I appreciate this very thoughtful and thorough critique! :hug:

I went with (mostly) monochrome to try and accentuate the white butterfly, I'm glad that you like how it turned out. I was surprised that it came out, as these white faeries were flittering about so much that they were near impossible to catch..
