a beautiful picture of the lovley butterfly,
The composition is nice with the buterfly in a small diagonal. Great DOF, the whole BF within focus and the BG nicely blurred.
Very well done.
Have a great weekend

Superb presentation of what was once regarded as a sub-species of the Tiger Swallowtail. This shot is practically faultless and is beautifully composed against a fine natural contrasting green BG.
Thanks for sharing this excellent view of P. canadensis,
Have a great weekend,

Hi Kevin. You realy know how to get the best from your kit. This is a fantastic close up of the beautiful butterfy. You have captured the markings with fine detail and rich colours. with a nice top view. well done TFS. good notes too
Have a good weekend.
Thank for your comments. I also have got a chance to meet your amazing collection.
You have created a perfect shot of the beautiful butterfly. Scenery, and butterfly create an fine composition. The reproduction of the insect, flowers and leaf as a BG is simply outstanding. I like great DOF, ultimate sharpness and perfect colour reproduction. Bravo.
Another marvel from you my friend!
I'm always amazed by the quality of your work and the amound of details and clarity you manage to capture these beautiful creatures with.
I really think that you could not have done better here. I mean the DOF is simply outstanding and keeps the entire length of the butterfly in perfect focus (despite the not exactly parallel position with you). The sharpness is brilliant, the exposure is spot and and the colors are very beautiful and well toned. Due to that, the contrast resulted is also a very appeasing one and draws a lot of attention to the subject.
Very well composed and presented - as usual.
Bravo and TFS

a well-focused and sharp picture of this swallowtail. Due to the widely opened wings, an optimal point of view and the exact focus, its wing pattern is well presented. Beautiful colous and light.
Best wishes, Peter

Very good colour-contrast with the background to show the beauty of this lovely butterfly. It looks quite like a mixture of the European Swallowtail and the Scarce Swallowtail. It is most interesting to see these differences between the continents. Thanks a lot

Superb clarity! The focus is razor sharp with exquisite details.
Wonderful use of lighting is producing vivid and rich colours.
The perch is excellent because it gives you perfect focus for your subject and a lovely OOF BG.
The POV is excellent.
