Serenity by FriendFrog Serenity by FriendFrog

Photography piece for the "Be a Spark Challenge."

Nature is my spark. Itís beautiful and terrible, powerful and fragile. Nature can be anything from a calming to an energizing force, and it reminds me of the worldís infinite possibilities. In my photos, I try to capture some aspect of nature that awes or inspires meóanything that ignites my imagination. I take my photos for you, too. If you havenít thought about the natural world in a while, I want to remind you of it. If youíre 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?

Wonderful shot, I love it!
I really like the clear Focus of your camera - there's absolutely no unwanted blurring.
On top of that I love the colours here, it's a beautiful combination.
I also love the way the plant is bending on account of the butterfly's weight - it's a nice effect.


Very well done, you did a very good  Job and I love it!

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 :)
