Nice shot. What is a mup ?
Since you wrote that this is remote shot, care to give some info about setup,how long did you wait ?

Really a beautiful image with a pleasing background and the subject is perfectly in the focal plane.

Beautiful - a freshly emerged butterfly perfectly in focus. Just wondering - why only one antenna? I know that in some areas mantis are attacked by certain bees or wasps that cut off their antenna for some reason - but on a butterfly?

Well,you wrote "remote shot" so I assume you set-up your equipment and then wait away from your tripod with remote shutter release for a subject to land.
I was just wondering how long did you wait ?

Remote shot is the remote control used to avoid vibrations...I was close to the camera and the subject was already there ;)
