Hello Jaap, this is an excellent butterfly shot. Pose is excellent, good work, very good sharpness, details, colours and composition. But I think your butterfly isnīt a Papilio nireus - itīs an Graphium agamemnon from south east asia. Itīs very difficult to make a good shot about this butterfly. Well done.
A very interesting shot and nice detailed with a beautifull color combination.
A butterfly garden (Ommen?) is excellent to shoot these pictures. (My safari doesn't go much further then the back garden).
Sorry, for the break, my old father is in hospital so I didn't had much inspiration.

Superb shot Jaap!
The POV and framing are perfect. Colours looks lovely, they are very well matched.
You did a great job on this one.
I like it very much.
WELL DONE & TFS
quick shot, hahaha, you wanted to write: wonderful shot!
I've never seen such a butterfly, you have so beautiful insects in your garden/country, I cannot find such animals here. And now you have a new fine camera, a good makro-lense, time and wonderful motives, so I'm looking forward what is coming next, I hope you will enjoy it very much, bye

Jaap, this is one beautiful butterfly but In My Honest Opinion, i'v seen better picture of you...
The focus is off and the butterfly is very blur, it seems like you shot this photo in Digital Zoom , a thing not very wise to do.

Bij het zien van deze vlinder dacht ik eerst dat er gaten in de vlinder zaten, door het zelfde groen waar te nemen, maar door de scherpte en de kwaliteit, is alles zo mooi in elkaar overgegaan, dat de vlinder bijna een camouflage pak draagt tegen over de achtergrond.
Ik ben benieuwd wat uw andere camera zal geven in uw prachtig macrowerk.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Tres joli Jaap et d'une profondeur de champ exellente. Le manque de lumiere se fait un peut sentir mais le resultat est joli.

This is a lovely critter, Jaap. I found them in a butterfly house on my vacation and could not ID them because they are an exotic species. Now I know. Very well done.
