Default Bird, Bee and Butterfly

From the garden. Many shots and patience to get the butterfly in flight. Waded into the bush to shoot a bee when the hummingbird came right in front of me. Do the limbs to the left of the butterfly help or hurt? I felt they gave some perspective. Km, Tamron 18-250.

The flower clusters show the plane of focus - otherwise the butterfly would look pasted in. Nice work.

That's what I was thinking. Without the branches, it really does look like a Photoshop trick. Thanks for the feedback.

Amazing! I can barely get them when they've landed.
