How shining is a Shining Plushblue?

This is for you, Lemon. This was shot way back in 2008 in Bt Timah. I think it must have just eclosed and therefore still not very wary. :thumbsup:

Yes, the butterfly was slanting inwards and I could not position the camera parallel to it. I used a f11, and as you noticed, even this did not help the debt-of-field. I think it is imperative to use the smallest aperture possible as the subject is more important than getting a beautiful, blurred background.

From the way I see it, the focus was more directed to an area just in front of the butterfly. Still a good take showing off the magnificient colours of this Flos.
