Wow! What a great detailed photo! I cannot find any thing to say! Bravo my dear friend. TFS.
With my best wishes and sincere greetings.
Very good close up, the details shown here are nice. I like the composition and illumination, but what is the white line surounding the proboscis?
fascinating portrait of the Scarce Swallowtail.
Perfectly focussed, details overwhelming.
Subdued colours look very pleasant in strong natural light.
A well decided close approach and tight cropping have created an image that looks extraordinary and new.
Thank you! Best reagrds,

your iso 400 comes over very quiet and pronounced..i think this is about the closest i have seen a specimen
clarity and truth...
the best ingredients for a presentation..
you have both and an interesting look at what is normally difficult to see
almost unbelievable the sharpness and magnification you get...and handheld!!( what is the magnification ratio,2:1?)

Another BEAUTIFUL and SUPER ENLARGED creature.
Good show Alexei.!!!
Your notes too have been done with "meticulas" care.
A lot of detail.
Amazing variety of colours.
A lot of co-ordinated contrasts provided by nature to this insect. Perhaps for camouflage.???
Regards from your friend in Canada.

How amazing this macro!!! It has stunning details that I had never observed in this species. I like a lot the scales in the wings and its black and white dressing :) Magnificent POV and composition.
Thank you very much for your kind wishes. I wish for you and yours the best of 2008, and I hope to go on seeing by myself through your postings that you are all fine and happy.
Thank you very much dear friend

Outstanding close-up shot with immaculate sharpness and clarity. The hairs look amazing and you have controlled the harsh lighting well and exposed perfectly. The mud-puddling activity is presented from close-quarters here and one can feel the intensity on its eyes. Great POV and composition. Kudos.
