Serenity by FriendFrog Serenity by FriendFrog

Photography piece for the "Be a Spark Challenge."

Nature is my spark. It’s beautiful and terrible, powerful and fragile. Nature can be anything from a calming to an energizing force, and it reminds me of the world’s infinite possibilities. In my photos, I try to capture some aspect of nature that awes or inspires me—anything that ignites my imagination. I take my photos for you, too. If you haven’t thought about the natural world in a while, I want to remind you of it. If you’re already passionate about nature, I want you to fall even more in love.

More butterflies. ;)

First, I'd just like to say how absolutely beautiful this picture is.
Everything is in focus; the background is a nice complementary color to this butterfly's color. Yes, butterfly's are very common picture ideas, but I especially like this one. I like how the main focus of this isn't directly in the center, but off to the right a little bit. It gives it a little more originality, in a way.
The only thing that slightly bothers me is the lighting on the leaves; my eye goes directly to them, as they are the brightest point in the picture.
Nevertheless, great job!
What do you think?

Very nice catch, and perfectly framed.
Also, the background you chose really helps (unlike the detraction we see in so many macro shots)

Thumbs up! :)

I love the contrast between the three main colours of this shot.. The butterfly is so beautiful, with these orange-brown wings against the blueish background!
The composition is perfect as well.
Faved it :)
