While every butterfly was enjoying its meal. This guy was on the watch. Hiding behind a leaf.
Critique from Extreme-Macro: I really liked the position of the body wich allowed capture of the face and some body details, looks to be above the shooter wich is very good, and the left placement of this in focus part. The leaf worked well or this impression of climbing position. The background is a nice feature too, darkened but not completely black. It's a matter of my personal taste but I would prefer a high magnified image with the same composition, would be a trade off, cutting part of the wings but with better detail in the remained of the scene. Would prefer also a longer DOF in this one, I'm not sure, and do not find in tech specs if you used flash for this photo, and if there are room to use a smaller aperture. The orange looks a little underexposed while the green would look just fine at this exposure but in field would try to manage for the colored butterfly appear more bright. With the flash settings could try to further the discussion on lighting.
The Artist thought this was FAIR

Composition is very nice, FOD in the correct place... but the picture is too dark. You shold make it brighter and (much better way) you should use more light when taking a picture. If you use slower shutter speeds, background will get more natural light and it will be much brighter. In the same moment, colors of the model will be more vivid and natural.
Very sharp details, colors and lovely shot of a beautiful butterly. Great macro shot!
Very nice, great colours!
I honestly got cold chills down my spine, this is amazing. The clarity, the shot, the colors, I'm going crazy. Absolutely amazing.
Great macro! You can see its face! Ipressive.
Good job. (:
