Another victim of my vendetta today. As I wrote yesterday we, with my friend Kaszek, were on near meadow to hunt for Swallowtails. Hunting was very fruitfull. We took many photos and saw 3-4 butterflies together on one big thistle. This photo is made against the sun, I like POV here and really royal pose of this big beauty.

Hi Greg ! Swallowtail again ! You're making me jealous with these wonderful shots ! But I'm happy you finally got your vendetta ! :-) Details, colors and light are excellent, as well as the POV. The right wing in the sun is particularly beautiful. Composition and BG are perfect. Very well done !

Another perfect shot of butterfly. Light, colours, sharpness are excellents
Best regards

Delightful image, Greg. The light has been used here to perfection. Love overall composition.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hello Greg,
An excellent capture again of this most colourful butterfly.
Good lighting,great colours and a nice clear BG.
I'd love to capture one of these and put in your theme but there are none here :-(
Maybe I'll find one when I go to Spain soon!
Great work,TFS

Hi Greg,

Hello greg, excllent colors, Bg, POV DOF Perfect details, Great work, TFS Kyle

Hi Greg,
It is a beauty! The back lighting works well here as it is not overpowering. Colors and detail look great. It is so hot and dry here that we do not have many butterflies around. Just dragon!

Hi Greg,
Just time for a very quick visit.
Nice shot. Thanks for posting.

No i prosze. Nastepny do kolekcji :) Sie ich ostatnio namnozylo. Ladnie wyglada taki przyciemniony.

Hi Greg,

Beautiful capture and well done on the lighting, details and composition. Excellent work.
