A real beauty with gorgeous markings and very pretty contrasting colors. Just a tad soft on the head, but still an eye catching photo. I like the composition with the butterfly turned slightly in a diagonal direction. Well done!!

The flowers are helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Machaon butterfly. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Silvio – Very good picture of this Papilio machaon. Excellent, view showing us many details of the wings, the body and the head of the insect.
• Excellent focus on the wings
• Perfect exposure with an appropriate choice of aperture/speed and iso
• Perfect depth of field
• Good contrast
• Acceptable sharpness showing many details of the wings; maybe sharpness could have been better to have a better view of the body, the head and the antennae
• Precise white balance and exact colour rendering for the butterfly and the flowers; maybe your picture could have had a better contrast or more vibrance in the colours (or a reduced gamma)
• Good post processing without any excess; see the above remarks
• Good background.
• Interesting picture showing this Papilio machaonon the flowers.
• Efficient framing and composition with an appropriate disposition of the subject in diagonal inside the frame
• Excellent and informative note.
Thank you for the sharing.
Have a good day.

Beautiful open wings showing an interesting pattern, which looks like a cat face.
Happy new year

Wonderful P. machaon photo, the pose is excellent, such as sharpness, and I love the very shallow depth of field, too. Color-wise the pic is probably undersaturated a little, however, the exposure and the composition are eye-pleasing.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
