Well done. The fill flash makes it stand out. Did you try any of the butterfly as a silhouette against the orange sky? That might have worked too.

Thank you... yes, I did try the silhouette, but when I tried without the flash, it was waaay too dark out and the butterfly became just a dark spot in the foreground and there was no separation between the foreground and background, so it just looked like focus problems.. hehehe

Wow, Todd! This is a wonderful composition on several levels. I especially appreciate the rich orange and black color scheme of both subject and background; a nice serendipitous convergence!

Wow...how the hell did you do that? How did you even see it or find it in the lighting. Very special shot imo.
