    Hi Steve and welcome to ThePhotoForum.

    Now this is a close-up, extremely sharp, very colourful photo of a beautiful peacock butterfly!

    What light did you use for this one? The on-camera flash?
    And is it my eyes or does it look a tad oversharpened by USM?

    Hi guys, i used the camera's built in flash for the shot, and i do tend to oversharpen and oversaturate my images. I just love the bright colours !

    Yeah, that's WAY over sharpened. use the sharpen brush in PS and use that around the edges, but leave the center of the butterfly alone.

    The color though is sweet.

    Hi, Steve & welcome to the forum! Very good capture. I also like taking pictures of butterflies. I'm intrigued by their design & colors. Could you maybe edit & fix it and re-post?
