Hello Pierre,
Lovely view of the Swallowtail. I love those large fluttering wings, the colours and its pose on a flower. Excellent details, a fine background and a very nice composition!
Regards Sigi

Hello Pierre,
An attractively marked butterfly photographed from a quartering away POV. I like the contrasting colors of both it's wings and abdomen. The red, black and yellow body is quite the eye pleaser with the red matching the color of the flower perfectly. The yellow and black markings on it's hind wings remind me of the Magnolia Warblers I see during the spring migration.
Not an easy shot to capture as I'm sure it's wings were fluttering. You did fine on focus and I love the clean blurred BG.

hallo Pierre
super nice composition to see
good sharpness and beautiful colours
thanks gr lou

An extremely beautiful composition, Pierre.
I too had the opportunity to capture this species only once in Goa way back in 2008.
The DOF is mind blowing in your picture.

Hello Pierre,
a fine shot of the Swallowtail with the water droplets on the flowers an additional bonus.
Regards Les.
