Lovely shot! I assume this was an unexpected shot (no prop blur) ?

I do seem to see a bit of a halo around the aircraft ? Did you use the highlights feature in Lightroom/Aperture/Photoshop (Elements) or anything by any chance ?

It'd be nice to know the settings too (the EXIF doesn't contain any data like the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and all that) :).

I'd like to know the EXIF too - everything seems in focus here and I'm wondering what aperture you used.

Also, is there any way you can bring more attention to the butterfly such as lightening or saturating it a little? My eyes darted back and forth between the flowers and the plane several times before I noticed the little fella sitting there.

Thank you guys!
yes Joris this shot was part of a sequence which included the flowers as a foreground and I found our little fellow when editing, I used the highlights in photoshop CS5 any advices to get it better? I began to use PS a few months ago and just getting used to it.Here goes the EXIF:
Nikon D90
Sigma 18-50mm 2.8 at 18mm
f/10
exposure 1/640
ISO 200

I didn't want to over saturate the image since the butterfly is a bit orange already, maybe adding a little blur to the cessna, the original shot was vertical, cropped to horizontal, and some dodging to dark areas.Regards, Lenny.
