Brilliant close-up of the swallowtail showing up all the details very clearly against the background. It is present all over Sweden but not so easy to find.

Impecable macro Alexei con una tradicional pero efectiva composición en diagonal.
Impacta la nitidez lograda y el despegue de la silueta del insecto sobre el fondo.
Buen encuadre y los colores son bien naturales.
Excelente disparo, así como tus notas.

Excellent shot of this beautiful butterfly. The exposure and sharpness are just perfect, the background blurry enough not to distract from the main subject. Superb clarity of the detail in the butterflie's wings. A really great piece of work. Congratulations,

this is a really brilliant picture of machaon. You have met the butterly with wings opened very wide so that they are flat. Consequently you achieve excellent sharpness on the entire wings. Well done.

This is a beautiful shot, the detail really is fantastic. I think the title is perfect also, the markings and colours really are very symmetrical. Great exposure and beautiful light/colours, an excellent shot I think. Just a couple of PP artifacts around the antennae but a very minor nit, it's a super shot with a great note. I hope your family didn't mind too much :-)

Hello Alex !
This is an awesome shot of my favourite butterfly ! It is simply perfect ! The details and textures on the wings are splendid, and I love the warm colors of the photo. Wonderful composition and POV, and excellent pose of the butterfly, with the wings wide open. Very well done !

What a nice shot for this lovely butterfly. I like this species. I saw one at 2100m altitude during my vacation and I will post it on TN... You are right for the "True colours". Exposure, sharpness and DOF are good.
Congratulations Alexei and TFS.

The detail on the butterfly is excellent. But it looks to me like you have blurred the background in PP and that makes it look un-natural now. It hink it is better to blur in camera or not at all.

Beautiful composition and sharpness.

Your notes are EXCELLENT.
The focus is so perfect that I can "see" the tiny hairs
on the top of its back.
You are a DEDICATED photographer bringing your very
BEST to us. All your registers are EXCELLENT.
Thanks for being you and sharing your beautiful work
with us all.

I again go back to one of your earlier postings and this is an outstanding image with such lovely colours and sharp details on its beautiful butterfly. Another masterpiece. Superb lighting and exposure levels and you have captured a classic open-winged pose here. I like this warm surrounding. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.
