Hello Ishi
Wonderful capture with vivid colors.

Well, this is much better, without a finger ruining the composition Ishi, the salient characteristics of the Syrian Swallowtail are very much in evidence in this fine dorsal capture within quite natural surroundings.

Hi Ishi,i'm really jalous of your pic,i whish to do one like that one day! It's a absolute perfection on a fantastic specie.The colors of the wings,especially the blue,is over the top of quality!! Today 2 points are not enough,My best compliments,have a nice day,LUCIANO

I love the colors and textures of this photo. Great snap shot!

Hello Ishi,

A wonderful, sharply focused shot of the swallowtail, detailing the colours and patterns precisely.
IMO the composition would have been even better with a slightly diagonal orientation to counter the central positioning.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
