Focal Length 100
580EX w/ Ring Light
Maybe its just my eyes... I am getting tired.... But, I think its a little over-saturated...
I agree with Mark. This is a female Eastern tiger swallowtail. Unless you were shooting with some really orange sunlight, this seems over-saturated.
Other than that, I really like it. The composition is interesting with the intersecting lines and sky. Good use of DoF. Nice positioning to get the whole wing and the whole body. Maybe a tiny bit of motion blur on the close wing, but whatever.
Where in CT?
I think it would have stood out more with a darker background.
I see you're using a ring light. Can I assume the 100mm is a macro?
If so, you might benefit from a tripod. If you used one, then remote shutter and shutter release delay could sharpen things up quite a bit for you.
