Great capture of a Macleay's Swallowtail, a species that I would liked to have seen when we were in Austalia.
This is sharp and well composed on the buddleia flowers to show the underside of the butterfly well against a green bokeh BG.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Lovely capture of this beautiful Swallowtail endemic to Australia. I like the point of view showing sharp details and fantastic colours of the underside. I like its pose too even though it is a bit shy! Very fine plain background too.
Many thanks, Ulla

A wonderfully clear picture, especially as you captured it at 1/160. Yes, it is a common flight characteristic of the Swallowtails (Papilionidae) to flutter constantly as they feed. You are only really likely to see them with the wings still when it is cool, most often early in the morning before the flight muscles have warmed up. Thanks.
You will see many pictures on TN with the wings slightly blurred by this movement.

A very interesting POV! I miss the head, but I like the colorful flowers as well. Beautiful colors overall and a fantastic BG. Your DOF could have been a little better tho - I might think f8 minimum for close-ups, unless you want to be create with parts that are OOF.

Hi Klaudio, you are the "featured artist" today on the TN homepage and this photo caught my eye. Beautiful colours and sharpness on the butterfly.
I think maybe I would prefer to see the flowers either as sharp as the butterfly, or else totally defocussed - but nonetheless a great shot.
