Hello Boguslaw,
These Swallowtails are beautiful butterflies. You photographed this one very well especially in terms of depth of field and point of view. The refection of the harsh light on the leaves in the background is maybe a tad distracting.
Nevertheless well done!

Bardzo Ładny kadr, motylek i kolory. Motyl trochę uszkodzony ale i tak jest bardzo ładny. Wiem jak trudno podejść takiego motyla.
Tylko jak widzę nie był robiony Canonem a FinePix S7000

Wspanialy okaz chociaz troszke pokiereszowany, w tym roku jakos nie napotkalem. Wspaniala ostrosc i ladnie sie komponuje z kwiatem, hociaz moze tego kwiatu za duzo, zbyt pochlania uwage.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel
