I just thought that this thistle picture was kinda nice, so I thought that I'd share it.

Pretty much straight out of the camera, no crop.

Shot using the same setup as my last butterfly pic.
A photograph can be a Beautiful thing.

Too bad the thistle flower hides a fair bit of the body of the butterfly.
Bugs are difficult as they seldom sit exactly where they should to be to be photographed perfectly.
Overall I found the tone of the image to be a bit dull or muted.
I played with colour curves a bit in CS2 and pulled a bit more green out of the background.
Possibly the white balance is not set correctly on your camera.

Please don't misunderstand my criticism, it's all meant to be positive.
And I could be way off the mark too. :)
