I changed the background to bring focus onto the butterfly. I thinkk it worked :)

This is the zebra butterfly, Heliconius charitonius, from Central & South America.

Yes, you are right but it look much better when butterfly is in natural environment and there is no shadow behind it wings :)

Hmmm. I think its a lovely picture, I'm just not so sure about the background choice. I guess I kinda feel like it would be better if there were a little something to break up the solid green a bit?

the oroginal background was too distracting so I had to do it this way unfrotuantely

I've been busy being pregnant. That and work, makes me soo tired in the evenings, so the time I used to spend in the evenings with my lap top checking out Deviant Art is limited to 'rarely and not too often'. I picked up my camera the other day and almost forgot how to use it !
Having a baby at 42 is much more tiring than having one at 30 !! Still all is well and we're excited for the big day.

Yes - well - that would be sapping your energy. You're very brave having a baby a 42. I don't think I'd cope :) Let me know all the details :)
