[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in my daughter's garden on a wonderful summer's day. The Tiger Swallowtail was the commonest butterfy there this summer. I think this one is female as there is an orange dot at the base of the wing near the body as well as blue irredescence on the bottom border of the wings.

Nice shot of this beautiful Papilionidae!
A bit smoth focus on the edges of the wings, but shows the beauty of this specie!

Excellent composition! Focus is not perfect...:( I often have that problem too;).
But, regardless this is a very nice picture, and very appropriate for TN.
Thanks for sharing,

Hai Lois, nice composition too bad anout the focus, I think you could save some with a good workshop. Thanks for the information about this guy, greetings Reina

Colours and composition in the image are nice, you've got a good eye and the framing for this image is perfect. Too bad the focus is a bit off.
