This Papilion machaon, flied flower in flower with a high rhythm of beating wings..., exactly settled continued to beat the wings, was very difficult to focus it... exactly with high speed shot, I did not obtain to prevent the effect of haul wings… That´s the best I can do in that day...

I quite like the movement on the wings, the rest of the shot has lovely details and the composition is lovely.



Olá, Já está nos meus favoritos .... tentei fazer o mesmo e nem se percebe a cor da borboleta! As cores estão 5* fica bem Ana:)

Nice POV and pose for a difficult shot where the subject keeps moving, Joao. Still you manage to catch it. Unfortunately, the image appears very much oversharpened. White lines between the subject and the background are a sure sign of oversharpening. Check the stems of the flowers and the legs and antennae of the butterfly.
