It's Christmas time so this one is probably doing what a big portion of the world population are doing at this time of year – stuck in for the gluttony feast. Sorry I cannot help with the ID. It's going to need one of those real butterfly specialists to pin this one.
A great composition with the flower and the insect at an angle and basically running through the diagonal. The colours are lovely and the details are nice and sharp. The evenly coloured OOF green BG is well removed and isolated the subjects very well.
Good work and TFS.

Nicely captured image, good colors. Needs a little noise reduction but otherwise well done, especially the positioning of the corner framing of the flower.flower

What a lovely and well-timed capture of this greedy butterfly doing a deep dive into the orchid. Great sharpness and lovely details. I like your composition very much.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

What a nice scene and perfect its execution. You managed to catch a rare and wonderful scene. Petal and butterfly reproduction is amazing. Terrific soft impressive light and superb details/sharpness. BG is well blurred and nicely coloured. Only BG is noise a little bit. My compliments and TFS.

This is nice. I like it. It is fun to see a different image of a butterfly. I suppose in the wild that would be taking quite a risk with predators about. I suppose the temptation was just too great. (Put that Christmas cookie down!!)

that's lovely, I have never seen a butterfly creeping inside a flower - it looks very nice.
Thanks and all the best for 2008
