Hello Horia,
A very nice capture of Iphiclides podalirius taken from a fine POV with good sharpness on the lantana flowers against a pleasing contrasting OOF dark natural BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Horia
optimal focusing on the Iphiclides Podalirius and the little daisy on a background much neutral that puts in prominence the depth of the photo. Optimal contrast and clear details.

Hi Horia,
Sorry my knowledge on the ID of butterflies is rather scary.Great capture in its natural surrounds.The flower seems to be of a similar type we have here, well pronounced against a soft BG.Well done.
