Love all the colours here. The dark green background is a very nice contrast to the warm orange and brown colours of the butterfly. The flowers are an added bonus with the small insects crawling around them. I do like the angle you captured here, it's a bit different than most. ....it's okay to be different :D

Its a very well composed picture. You wonder how they can fly with wings like that. Do you suppose they just get really tattered as they age from wear and tear?

a nice shot of this impressive butterfly.
I love the beetles on the flower.
Sharp with good colours.

OK...should I be jealous or happy for you?
This is a great butterfly shot. Your work has just progressively gotten better and better. I'm impressed. :D
I also like the unusual angle and until I read Joey's comments, I didn't even realize that there were beetles on the flowers. This is a good one!

Wow! I wonder how it manoeuvres without that tail?
Great colours and details, superb notes

You sneaked this one in when I wasn't looking! : )
The colors and composition are very nice. There is a dynamic feel to the shot.
I've seen some pretty tattered butterflies able to get around. We do what we have to do; handle what we are dealt or die, I suppose. It's a nice shot.

Wonderful shot of this Giant Swallowtail with lovely soft colours and sharo details. Though the wings are worn and torn it still retains its beauty and seems a huge one. The darkish BG highlights the subjects well. The lantana-like flowers must be very sweet for so many inseects to be enjoying its nectar. Excellent POV to portray this scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.
