Another Swallowtail, last one from this series, I promiss! Yesterday we're with my friend Kaszek on our nearby meadow again. Beautifull weather, slightly windy, full sun. We saw three Swallowtails and then we walked to our local hill. It is very wild area, full of trees, bushes, flowers and of course insects. Kaszek founded very interesting scene with crab spider and butterfly, we took pictures of it and many others things. Expect full report on TN in next few days. And now enjoy our most beautifull butterfly and Polish Blue Sky [TM] :-)

Hi Greg !
Another wonderful Swallowtail, seems that this meadow is a fantastic place full of nice creatures ! Your Polish blue sky makes a wonderful BG. Composition and POV are excellent, as well as sharpness, details, colors and textures on the wings. very well done !

Yes, it is the most beautiful butterfly and especially against the Polish Blue Sky. [My TM I think!]
It is beautiful Greg, with a wonderful pose and excellent focus and colours. Keep them coming...

I have enjoyed this series, Greg. This one is as good as any other in terms of perspective, DOF, colours and fine details.
TFS and take care.

słusznie drążyłeś temat do oporu, taka rzadkość i piękność wymagała utrwalenia w wielu wydaniach. Dobra jakość, ładne kolory i kadr. Podoba mi się jak poprzednie.
Pozdr. Al.
