Wow! What a great shot Kathy!!
Very sharp and the contrasting colours are gorgeous. I love the composition, the butterfly, flowers and greenery look great. You even got him sipping some nectar.
Very nice detail in the wings, I especially like the tail end with the blue and redish orange.
Wonderful image!! This is well worth a runny nose and itchy eyes.

Hi Kathy , I had to smile reading your comments ,I have the same type of luck , if I put on my birding lens then the bugs come out , if I put on my bug lens then a flock of birds appears ... :-) it is likely some type of photographer's Murphy's Law ;-)
if I had gotten a shot of a butterfly with my bird lens and it looked like this , I would be pretty happy with that.
the shot has good detail , nice color and a good point of view , an good photo of this beautiful swallow tail. thanks for sharing it,

Hello Kathy, this is a great shot of this butterfly and you have something to be satisfied for sure. I like the pov and the light passing lightly through the wings... this is beautiful. And the angle of the flower makes a nice picture too. And for allergies, I've suffered for years. I don't know what happened, I am free of them now, almost... I take 1000mg a day of Ester-C (a vitamin C under the form of calcium ascorbate instead of ascorbic acid) and I think it really helps me. WEll, I wish you luck with your doctor and cross my finger everything will be fine for you! Bye bye and thank you for the great picture,
We would love to have another dedicated photographer as yourself in Alberta. With your talents and preseverance and our nature beauty here you would get no rest and your flash card would always be full. This is a great image Kathey with splendid details and colors to display this beautiful butterfly. Thank you for sharing.
