    I found a beautiful butterfly at a buttefly garden. I was amazed how still he was for my camera, barely moving his wings.

    Then I was told by the workers there that he was likely dying because of the number of people that would TOUCH them and pick them up inside the garden despite numbers of signs directing you not to.

    Here he is:

    Very intense colours!
    Beautiful colours.
    DOF is a tad too shallow, but other than that... poor butterfly.

    Ditto for the DOF comments, could use more to keep the entire subject in focus. The colors really seem unnatural to me, did you PP those?
