Papilio torquatus

Same yesterday's butterfly, but this time perched on a flower and from lateral POV with closed wings.

I've included a bonus picture of this butterfly with POV from below open wings in WORKSHOP.

In the WAS you can see a view from below the wings.

I hope you like it!

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hi Jesus,

This view is even more beautiful! The pose at the flower is wonderful and makes such a pretty picture. Colors, details and composition are outstanding. I love the workshop too.


Con estas dos fotos más has realiazo una documentacion fotografica perfecta de esta especie.
Los tres puntos de vista completan una descripción muy didactica.
Me gusta la vista inferior, pocas veces se ve tan bien la parte de abajo del abdomen de estos insectos.
Gracias y un saludo, Felipe.

Hello Jesús,
I saw this fine image previously but could not give you the credit that this deserves as I has run out of smileys.
This is a superb, well composed shot of P. torquatus on a Lantana flower. The POV showing it with its wings closed is ideal and taken against a fine neutral BG with superb sharpness, DOF and colours.
Well done my friend and thanks: this is a favorite!
Best regards,

Ciao Jesus!
Come va? Composizione straordinaria, con una doppia diagonale. Nitidezza e particolari straordinari, messi in risalto dallo splendido sfondo sfumato. Splendida anche quella del WS, anche se un po' in ombra.
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Jesus,
What a superb butterfly, which seems to be a cousin of our Swallowtail. You caught it in a perfect pose and on a lovely flower. Fine sharpness and harmonious composition. Interesting too to see the picture in the WS.
Thanks and kind regards

Preciosa Papilio desconocida en estas latitudes.
Como siempre la luz al punto y gran suavidad y naturalidad en los colores: fantástica !

The patterns on the wings are quite uncommon.

Excellent focus and exposure.
Exquisite details and composition.
