Very nice image, Georgie, with great composition and lovely colors. the only thing I regret is the blured eyes of the butterfly..
anyway, keep up the good work :)

Beautiful, sharp shot, Georgie!
This is well-composed with good BG and a fine specimen!
TFS, regards, Ivan

Very pleasing image of this colourful specimen Georgie. As Rutsa mentioned the head is a little OOF. The POV you chose combined with focussing on the tail caused a limited DOF.
You might have got more of it sharp if you'd focussed on the head or chose a different POV.
Very nice shot though.
Cheers, Steve

Hello Georgie,
Nice shot. The POV is good but the sharpness is only on the body, not on the eyes, but itīs a bit difficult to do this better! The colours seem powerful to me, maybe you changed them a bit?
Greetings, FABIAN

Hey Georgie
Very nice shot of swallowtail,
Good lighting and focusing,


Very nice picture of this Papilionidae. The red eyes on the back wings are great. Thanks
