This is a killer shot! Beautiful saturated colors, and the detail is very sharp. I really like the frame filling composition. Nice work! I haves always said it is better to be lucky than good. In this case, you were both.

Crisp clear macro.I liked POV,sharpness,details,lighting,colors and composition a lot.Have a very good weekend too!
Great photo with known techniques. You must study the manual ver and over and make a laboratory at home to tame a high tech. camera :). My disappointment was so big with my camera that almost returned it.
Soon we'll see better photos!

I wonder why the photos made by your D-SLR was out of focus! It isn't a normal situation.
Very good POV!
Very beautiful colours!

Magnificent colours, the invoice and quality, a dim background and the butterfly is good - all is well done! Very beautifully.
Hallo Peter, genügt Dir nicht Euer schönes Schmetterlingshaus in Wien? Da machst Du mich auch noch mit einen Schwalbenschwanz ganz narrisch. (ich hatte meinen letzten vor ca. 45 Jahren life gesehen!!) Auf jeden Fall: Gratulation mein Freund - erstklassige Arbeit! Das gilt sowohl für das Foto als auch Deiner Bemerkung. Danke! Ich wünsche Dir noch ein schönes Restwochenende.

Wow, fantastic shot, beautiful detail and superb colours. A nice POV too. A beautiful subject and a great note. Excellent work.
You're lucky man! This is dreamshot! Real Angel who visited your shopping hell :-) One of most 'royal' butterflies. Great work! Story in note is very interesting, same as workshop. I think about two possible reasons of your new 350D malfunction - 1) Errare humanum est 2) Errare Canonum est ;-)

Hello Peter, what a nice record of this butterfly. They are always so hard to shot. For me this is a very good composition. Very clear and sharp. Lovely colors and contrast against the bacground. I hope you get better results with your new camera when you know it better. Kind regards, Gabriel

Firstly, thanks for the very interesting note. I enjoyed reading about your experience in Hades and how the old camera proved to be the trusty one. However, I am sure we will soon see the results of the new camera, as you learn to apply the 'high-tech' magafters.
The photo is more than just 'quite ok'. It is excellent with a lovely composition and POV. The colours are stunning and so are the details. The BG is well OOF and the lighting/exposure was well controlled.
Great work and TFS.
Wonderful capture again of this magnificent beauty..And gee wiz, you just got the Canon...
It has to warm up to ya mf :)
I'm sure you'll find that the results will meet or exceed your expectations, once you're comfortable with it..
Expect the Unexpected ;-}
Very well done.

bin auch wieder da - und habe so viele schöne Photos verpaßt. Zum Glück nicht diesen wundervollen Schwalbenschwanz. Die Umgebung von Wien muß ein Insektenparadies sein, wow, was Du nur immer wieder für Schönheiten findest. Vielen Dank und lieben Gruß

A breathtaking image, Peter!
Beautiful colours and nicely composed.
Just personal taste, but I feel that it's slightly too sharpened on the wings.

You deserve each of your points over and over. You are an excellent photographer with lots of talent. Wonderful capture of this Swallow tail. Excellent depth of field that keeps the whole butterfly in perfect focus but blurrs the background notably. Vibrent colours and awesome patterns on the wings. As usual a flawless presentation with superb sharpness. Truly precise in every aspect, with excellent framework. I appreciated looking at this beauty.
Marvellous photos of butterflies - and this one looks much more exotic than I expected to find in Austria. We have very few butterflies in Sweden nowadays. I do not know why and I miss them.

Hi, dear Peter.
I do not know what you think about light or heavy photo equipment but you manage to create fantastic shots with help of any camera you hold in your hands. This shot is the best proof of this statement. Simply terrific details of the entire butterfly and flower. Colours as well as BG are amazing. Pictured scene is sweet and POV is brilliant. My warm greetings and kind regards.
P.S. I am very touched with your warmest comments. Thanks a lot.
