hi Arunas Eismantas ,
a wondeful picture of this swallowtail good pov and xcellent details.

Wow! that a love butterfly,I like blue on that wings.Nice color and nice photo.

Hello Arunas,
You have captured the perfect butterfly speciman with fresh colors and no flaws in wings due to age or weathering. It is the ideal angle for butterfly shot with wings spread wide. Focus is excellent and exposure is very good. I like the image very much and wish to see if I can make the beautiful colors pop by making slight adjustments in contrast, saturation and sharpness. I will attempt a workshop. I think your frame is outstanding and so perfect for this photo. It looks so professional. TFS.

Trés belle image.
