All four are excellent. What extra processing have you done?

Great photos, as usual, NHL! I haven't seen posts from you for a while (I've been off the forums for some time) - so great to have this 'series' back for me to see it again.

I particularly love the colour and compositional balance of photo 1.

The last photo (of the turtle / tortoise) is also very interesting - seeing how it holds on to the lily leaf... and that 'sun reflection'. I am not sure... are they natural (or placed) -they seem so interestingly spaced?

In Photoshop I increased the vibrance to +30, and the saturation to +6-9... sharpened then a dropframe

The sun also helped...

Thank you everyone for the nice comments

#1 is one of the best butterfly photo's I've ever seen. Just a perfect capture.
