una straordinaria e fantastica cattura di Macaone, il perfetto equilibrio compositivo mi fa pensare ad un'immagine artistica di tipo "still-life", eccellente definizione, bellissimi i colori dalle tonalitŕ delicate e stupendo BG con le rocce che affiorano. La scelgo come mia immagine favorita.

One of the most interesting shots of this species that I have ever seen on TN. I like the surrounding with OOF rocks and grass. Nice OOF not disturbing background and two strong color accents - yellow butterfly and purple flower. I also like the relatively wide frame

Excellent details in the butterfly!
Pin sharp, great colour reproduction and the pattern is well reproduced...
The DoF spot on produces a fine 3-D effect!
Ritkán járok erre, bocs, hogy nem válaszoltam. Az angolt nem nekem találták ki:)) Változatlanul rosszul írok, és beszélek. Inkább csak a barátok miatt jövök fel. Otthon szinte minden fotós forumon fenn vagyok. Itt jobban érzem magam, csak jó lenne magyarul írni.
Csodálatos kép. Remek színek, szép, jól elkapott pillanat.Galériád nézve, van mit tanulnom:))

Great shot of this common swallowtail, a beautiful species nonetheless.
Well composed with the purple flowers and OOF rocky background. Good sharpness.
This year was hopeless for fungi here. Maybe better next year.

Hi Laszlo, An excellent sharp and well coloured composition. The DOF effect making the backdrop as it is helps this butterfly stand out from the crowd. TFS. Murray.

How beautiful and splendidly captured!! I like a lot the composition with the butterfly between the Centaureas, the beautiful framing and even your signature in beautiful letters. The perfect focus on the butterfly against the blurred bg makes it a perfect shot.
Congratulations and thank you very much for this beauty.
My best regards

I love this one!
The slightly OOF natural BG, the POV, the composition on the Knapweed flowers, the dorsal POV and sharpness of the Swallowtail all contribute to a beautiful portrait of this species.
You may not take many butterfly photos, but those that you do are excellent!
Thanks and best regards,
