Nice capture Greg,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.
I want to see the photo of you eating the swallowtail as a WS post!!!!!

Don't be hatefull! i prefer this one than the swallowtail :-) This is a superb shot of a very clear killer! Look at that beards, it looks cool! But as for your vendetta, i shot it on this spring. If you want to see it you can check this link below ;-)
You know it's a hard target indeed, i'm sure you can get it in a ten years ;-) Ha ha ha! Don't angry please, i'm joking! As a matter of fact, this robber fly is on top of my wishlist :((
Great shot and great note!!!

You might have to come to the Butterfly House in NZ to shoot it, Greg.
But this image is great! Definitely suits your mood, you grumpy old thing! And I'm sick of butterflies now, so this big robber fly looks good to me. Try a duck next time.
Have a good Sunday, and sweeten up!

Haha ! I am not alone ;-) Often I run after butterflies in mountain and they are not patient and escape... So after I come back with flowers :-))
But your vendetta is very good ! Bravo and keep cool my friend !!!

You know how I like frontal POVs and this is not an exception.
The compositions is very strong and I apreciate the agressive framing. I am always "shy" with framings :) Nice shot, MF.
I only have one swallowtail in my gallery, so be patient, I am sure you will get it wherever you are not looking for them.
Have a nice Sunday! PT.

Hi Greg !
You had no luck on this day, nasty Swallowtail was not cooperative, but I'm sure next time you'll have more luck - I hope so, as I would be really pleased to see a swallowtail shot from you ! :-)Your funny note made me smile ! Picture is excellent of course - details, colors, composition, POV, DOF, everything is very good. I love it !

It's cool. You have selected DOF and POV extremely precisely. These components of shot have allowed you to create a really dramatic picture. It's quality is excellent too. TFS.
