[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is the biggest(110~125mm) butterfly in Taiwan.(Idea leuconoe) So, it fly very gently and slowly. But I still spend 2 hours to take this photo without tripod or something else. No cropped. This is my first post at here, and wish all like it. I had removed the picture in TE. Thanks for all your comment!

Picture in TE can't show in TN.

Absolutely stunning, Wenchen! Colors, DOF and sharpness are perfect. I understand this is a difficult image to catch, and you did it very well. A shot taken a bit more in front would have allowed the wings to show more separation, but that's very little nit, compared to the beauty of this photo.
When you have time, think of removing your TE posting to comply with site TOS. Thanks for posting it here!

Remarkable indeed. Excellent light and neutral BG. It IS very difficult to capture such a picture

I think this is one of the best butterfly photos I have seen! The isolation of the subject and therefore less distraction or clashing make this a wonderful capture, Wenchen. Great detail, color, lighting and BG. To my eye, perfect. Welcome to TN and TFS.

WOW....very beautiful and impressive !

Beautiful photo.
I like your caption.
Good colours, nice details and DOF.
Well done.

Stunning photo, Wenchen!Perfect details, DOF and colours!
I like it a lot, TFS!
Very well done!!

I am stunned, very sharp, very beautiful. TPS !

Very good flight-in shot Wenchen.
Great sharpness, details, colours and composition.
I like the BG too.
Great work.
Welcome to TN.

Great shot Wenchen. It was worth the wait!

Fantastic capture Wenchen and welcome to TN - a marvellous chot to open with. Great composition and the focus is great. If it is on TE you'll have to remove it from there to post here. I believe that this is the first butterfly in flight on TN, very well done.

Welcome to TN Wenchen, this is the sort of image most of us just dream of and you have achieved it in your first post.
Everything is perfect, the pose, the background, the colours, the clarity.
It will go straight to my favourites.
Well captured.

Your effort payed very well, a difficult picture to accomplish. Butterfly captured very sharp and DOF is very good. TFS Iris

This is an amazing photo, Wenchen. Your patience really paid off. The shot is crystal clear, the colors are beautiful, even the background. It is so incredible to see the butterfly in flight, with a good view of the body and the legs all tucked under. Congratulations on a stunning shot!

Hi Wenchen

I realy never saw a picture of a buterfly in fly before !
they are always dificult to catch even when they stop at something, I can't even have time to focus or compose the image and there they goes again...You did a very dificult shot and the shot is perfec, POV, DOF and sharpness.. well done

Most beautiful photo, I have ever seen...

hi .very nice capture,regards Ali . . .

Simply superb: You are setting very high standards for us fellow photographers!!

Congratulations for your outstanding results..

Nice air shot Wenchen. Colours and light are good. Framed nicely too. DOF makes for a good blurred background. Nice presentation. TFS Trevor
