Hello Mark,
Very beautiful photo of this Swallowtail in great sharpness, details and splendid light and colours. Excellent choice of composition and blurred background. Taken from an attractive POV.
Last month I bought the same lens.

Looking beautiful.Everything looks OK to me.Just I would like to cropped the distracting OOF branch light out from BG for more interest on bfly.

hallo Mark

Hi Mark,
Nice details. Amazing colors and good
contrast against the background.
Regards Jiri.

Hello mark

Excellent shot like a painting, very nice composition, very nice BG color in contrast to the subject, splendid sharpness, fine details, beautiful natural colors. Thanks for sharing.



The contre jour is perfect, highlighting the soft colours. Good sharpness on the right wing but the head is a bit softer. The DoF must have been very shallow at the lens length you choose.
