[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is the one having taken it when going to see the rose in the garden near the house. The Small White butterfly and the Swallowtail butterfly were flying over surroundings of the flower bed. The butterfly is not interested in the rose. The butterfly was flying about center of a flower of a small pink flower that existed in the fence.

It is one of the butterflies that justifiably and sober are deep. There are over 550 species. It is possible to see from the center of the city to the mountainous district in various environments.
The design of the splash is very beautiful though it passes too much and it tends to overlook the indifferent species.
The larva eats the leaf of the mandarin orange etc,.

Hello Mikio,
such a near shot of this big butterfly. Very pretty wings and the sharpness is well rendered. The colour contrast makes it so well seen and the composition is lovely here.
Very good view.


This is one fine capture of a swallowtail friend Mikio. The diagonal framing with nice focus on the head is perfect for positive ID. You have metered the exposure well in keeping the composition pleasing to look at.
Thanks and kind regards,
