  • Support — Cuz I like the name. And the colors. (It's a large file, could be cropped a bit tighter.) Sca (talk) 14:08, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Excellent definition. Shouldn't want it cropped myself. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 14:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - per Coat - and also Sca. It is a delicate, lovely picture and it is so sharp, you can count each little hair on the butterflys back. (cropped or not) Hafspajen (talk) 17:46, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
How many are there, Haffy? Sca (talk) 18:14, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Weak support. It'd be worth keeping an eye on the article, as it's a little over-illustrated. Also, it be good if the subject could be sexed, but as males and females are apparently pretty similar, it's not essential. Beautifully composed photo! J Milburn (talk) 10:06, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
