incredible shot... iirc I saw some similar from you, what's the trick? Postprocessing? Or just a lucky situation to give you this light and background/bokeh coupled with that co-operating butterfly?

Thanks for your kind comment.

I'm new to DSLR's and don't own any post-processing software. My knowledge of tricks is non-existent. I can only attribute it to the Sony A700 taking goodphotos.

This was taken with the 300 mm Tamron lenson the macro setting. The A700 takes nice bokeh shots like this with the kit lens too.

I'd say it's beginner's luck.
