Not bad for manual focus. I like to practice manual focus handheld shots with tight focal planes (this one was just about 1cm) as it keeps me physically in the habit of maintaining solid basic shooting practices. It is easy to abandon things like proper form when technology makes it easy to get by without it. Technology fails though, and when it does you only have yourself to rely on. And my self is getting old enough to where holding stone still is not as easy as it once was, especially in awkward positions that shots like this often necessitate.
This butterfly is called a Longwing, btw.
