Nice one !

A beautiful butterfly captured well! I like this. I am wondering whether the pic would have been better with a larger aperture than F5 with a shade shallower depth of field (DOF).

Thank's for comment. The wings were always on the move. You are right, with a larger aperture at THIS moment DOf was better.
Cheers Hans
