beautiful image, and yes I have to say you right this is one of the most beautiful Butterflies.
I especially like the POV and the colors in this composition.
Sharpness, details and DOF are wonderful. Very well done.

Another magnificent butterfly shot and this really looks like the most beautiful of all. Very impressive sharpness and colours and the backlighting on its wings make them glow. The fact that it is an endangered species makes this shot even more commendable. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

You managed to capture an amazing specimen of butterflies. I like how well you have reflected its fluffy body and transparent wings. DOF is superb asl we asl the colours, BG is fantastic. Bravo and TFS.

I really love this butterfly and it is very rare here too. It only occurs along a small stretch of the Baltic Coast and on the Isle of Gotland. You've managed to get a very nice close shot here showing great details of the nearly transparent wings and the beautiful pattern. Lovely colours too and a fine soft background that makes it stand out.
Many thanks, Ulla

you show an 'old' sharp and brilliant picture of P. apollo.
The hairy body and the wing scales are nicely seen.
Cropping is a bit close, in my opinion.
Best wishes, Peter

Bravo pour la pose de cet 'Apollo', les teintes sont très belles.
Il est très très rare en France.
On ne le voit que dans l'extrême sud est.
