Hi Greg !
So you finally got your Swallowtail ! Congratulations ! :-) You must be so happy now ! And what a super shot this is ! Details, textures, colors, composition, POV, DOF, everything is perfect.

a beautiful buterfly you have captured and I'm not envious, not at all;-(. I have a lot of small butterflies but the large ones are rare. But In the South parts Göran have a lot of them, not fair.
Well composed, good details and very nice colours.
The WS is very nice too.
Great work, my friend.

great capture of that majestic swallowtail in very good shape and a well illuminated pose. Congratulations for taking the chance not caring for any scratched legs!
This year seems to be a very good year for swallowtails here in central Europe. Have seen them on several occasions in fair numbers during last weeks, in the hills near Vienna as well as very high up in the Tyrolese Alps. What a delight to see them passing by quickly, and what an excitement to watch them take a seat in the distance - and a fence or a gorge between you and your prey.
Great shot, great story my friend!

The detail is amazing in this photo. Perfect focus and great edges. Outstandin exposure with very nice natural colors. A very pleasing composition.
I was reading your note and I completely understand your experience. The same thing happened to me this spring. When the thistles began to bloom the Eastern Tiger Swallowtails were all over them. I could get three in a single photo. It was amazing. And, shortly thereafter, I was walking along a horse trail near the lake and came upon an open meadow washed by the sun's rays and full of Texas wildflowers. Butterflies were all around. I caught myself thinking how lucky I was at that moment. That is the joy of nature and nature photography.
