A charming shot of this superb butterfly!
The colors on its wings are fantastic - so many and so well saturated.

Lovely composition and framing as well.

Beautiful composition portraying this lovely butterfly very clearly in a nice pose. Great colours and the background is great except for the antennaes which nearly disappear, but it can't be helped.
TFS and regard, Ulla

a well captured swallowtail female. Nice colours and outlines contrasting against the dark background. Well chosen point of view. Nice to see how the butterfly adheres to the leaf edges by its legs.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Pam. Brilliant capture! Fabulous wing detail with folds and ridges etc. The dark BG loses antennae detail a tad but thats a minor groan. Great pic! Well done!!

distinctly three-dimensional, and almost shining in the dark: a perfectly well composed image with razor sharp details, well saturated colours, clear self-assertive contrasts in front of a dark background of very subtle greens makes this African lemon loving beauty from out of "everywhere" appear on stage like a diva.
Thank you! With best regards,

The colors and details on this swallowtail are superb.
They really pop out in crisp lines and good saturation.
Perfect POV and beautiful BG.

Lovely capture for this wonderful species. The butterfly stands out from the neutral BG. Exposure, sharpness and DOF are excellent. I like the shape of the leaf like a flame. As usual an useful note.
Congratulations my friend and TFS.

Excelente compo Pam con el ángulo ideal para presentar esta mariposa sobre su percha.
Me gusta la agudeza alcanzada y el OOF del fondo de la escena, gracias a una correcta profundidad, con intensos colores y detalles muy marcados en las alas del animal.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo
Excellent compo Pam with the ideal angle to present this butterfly on their hanger.
I like the reached sharpness and OOF of the bottom of the scene, due to a correct depth, with intense colors and very marked details in the wings of the animal.
Best greetings... Ricardo

Interesting member of Papilio genus, I've never seen before. Similar to our native swallowtails.
Excellent composition and DOF!
