Here you go then. Thank you for the advice!

again, it is your call, but first, I don't think it is that blurry (the fingerprint patterns on the wings are quite clear and the shadow is also sharp), and also if the photo better captures the essence and beauty of the subject, a little blur is OK, especially on this site where the emphasis is not on the photography per se.

It's not that I like the 3rd one. I like that more than any other. But the problem is it's a bit blurry... Maybe it does deserve the 1st place... I will put it as the 1st and see for while I guess.

I think it is the best one, but its not for me to decide, you should pick the one you like the best.

Well... It's not very clear, is it? Do you think it's fine to put it first?

so why not put the shot that took so much time and effort first?

well good for you for taking the time and effort to make the spotting extra special.

Yeah, it indeed needed some effort and patience in sitting in one place while holding the camera still on my hand and getting shots continuously. I missed more than 5 times it flashed. The shutter speed just wasn't enough. But luckily I got this even though it's a bit blurred... I literally jumped when I saw this on the screen... I even took a video cuz I didn't think I might be able to capture that shot. But as I didn't have the tripod with me the video is a bit shaky...

wow--I know how that goes. and then its such a mental effort to sort through all of them and decide which ones to keep and which to reject. Congrats on your patience though in getting what you wanted.

Ikr! I took more than 100 shots just to capture it flashing its wings. I was lucky to get that shot...
