I cannot believe this photo has been viewed 25 times without points. It is outstanding (almost the perfect butterfly shot). The composition is excellent, the colors are well saturated and pleasant, the focus is very sharp showing much detail, the DOF is outstanding, and you have an excellent neutral green background. Well done!
I like this shot a lot. Great exposure - both in sunny and shadowed parts of the shot. Nice details and perfect DOF. And I see this butterfly first in my life...

Muy hermosa la foto que nos presentas.
La composición, el punto de vista y la profundidad de campo son muy acertados.
El intenso color de las flores genera un vibrante contraste con el suave verde del fondo difuminado.
El foco y la exposición empleados destacan con mucha nitidez los detalles de la mariposa.
Felicitaciones y gracias por compartila,

A great POV of this swallowtail, J.C.
The colors are beautiful, with just the right light exposure,
and well saturated.
Lovely clean BG.
The narrow and tall presentation of this shot is very effective.
I like it a lot. TFS. : )

perfectly well taken image, very artistic. Wonderful light, perfect point of view, composition of objects and colours is delightful.
Because of the prolonged black stripe leading to the eyespot on the hindwing I think the butterfly might rather be the
"Eastern Swallowtail" (Papilio glaucus).
Good to read your nice words about TN. I guess lack of sufficient time is a problem for many of us. Even so, it is a most welcome pleasure to drop in every now and then, and find such awarding contributions as yours.
Thank you! My best regards,

What a superb macro!
This anise-swallow tails looks more that impressive!
Excellent management of both the POV and the DOF which gave you a very good isolation of the subject from the lovely blurred BG.
Also the sharpness is impecable and the colors and tones are charming.
Very well done!
Bravo, TFS and have a great week

Your picture is very nice. I like its great colours, excellent sharpness (of the butterfly and flowers) and beautiful BG. Its blurriness and colour tones are perfect. I like your vertical cropping so much/ It is very impressive. Perfect done and TFS.

A really lovely composition showing this beautiful Swallowtail in a nice pose on the equally beautiful blue flower. Excellent detail and lovely colours against the gentle green background.

Una bella composición Jorge, con agradable y criterioso encuadre vertical.
Me gustan los colores captados correctamente saturados, sobre un fondo impecable.
Los detalles y la nitidez son muy buenos, aunque el foco parece algo soft (tal vez por el post procesamiento).
La correcta iluminación colabora con la estética general de la presentación.
Un cordial saludo y nuevamento mis deseos de felicidades para vos y todos los tuyos.
