Hello Jitti,
A nice one from your archives of Papilio demoleus, the Lime, or Citrus Swallowtail. The pale yellow of fresh specimens deepens to almost orange with age and this one is an old specimen.
I like the POV taken with fine sharpness and natural colours.
Thanks and best regards,

hi Jitti,
nice angle to photograph the butterfly. only the sharpness and light are a bit low.
no, this is definitely not a Swallowtail. actually this is an aged Lime Butterfly (papilio demoleus) with broken wings which you might have mistaken as a tail.

Ciao Jitti, fascinating composition with lovely butterfly on a beautiful flower, splendid light, wonfderful natural colors, fine detyails and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jitti,fantastic capture of this tropical specie that i seen in Dominican Republic 2 years ago.Magnificent and elegant wings position and fantastic sharpness and colors,a very professional pic.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello JC.
The capture is nice and sharp. I like the perch on that flower. Artistic composition and thanks for sharing.

A really beautiful picture from your archives, JC.
The POV with presumably grey sky as the BG is unique. The red flower adds beauty to the composition.
TFS and regards.
