What a splendid capture of this lovely butterfly with the wings wide open. It stands out very nicely against the yellow flowers and details are very sharp and the colours natural. Very fine composition too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Good shot....The flowers outdo the butterfly, almost. In thumbnail it is the yellow which reaches out and grabs. Your notes are becoming very interesting to read.

That's usually the problem with swallowtails: they vibrate their wings too much to be able to get a good shot, but you managed a great capture with superb sharpness, excellent pose, POV and composition with the orange flowers.
Well done and TFS!
Enjoy your long weekend,

Very colourful and beautiful picture. Excellent composition too. For me it is fascinating to see these dark swallowtails which don't exist here.
Thanks and best regards

I love this picture! The composition is so beautiful and the butterfly is so sharp. The darker butterflies are tricky for me with exposure. I sse you used a tripod.
