Interesting moment. Perfect sharpness and beautiful colors.
I have seen this species in Mexico.
I saw this beautiful butterflies photograph yesterday but didn't comment due to lack of time to do a WS.
Black Swallowtail.... beautiful colored butterfly. Well captured if we talk on its details, sharpness and BG. Here the color of buds and butterfly is same, so top left corner is taking a big percentage of my concentration. Although you won't get much better POV, but I think little bit PP work can give it a different look. Although you will not get the perfect situation when you captured this Photograph. Obviously it's my personal opinion. I always do PP work before resizing (Here 300kb); don't know how it will be!
I always try to give my honest opinion with WS. Just ignore it if you don't like.
Thanks for sharing,

A perfect image, Ron, that gives the impression as if I'm seeing this beautiful mating pair with my own eyes.
These butterflies are truly attractive with those patterns, colors and dots on their wings and abdomen.
The DOF is outstanding.
Thanks for your kind words on my picture of a Waterhen that died defending her little ones.
