a very nice close-up picture of this beautiful butterfly.
Sharpness, details and exposure are very good.
And the insect is well seen against the clean BG.

Our friend just copy and past the same comments, I think
he have some language problems.
Have a nice weekend,

Good detail and POV, I like the composition.
Well seen from the BG, and the black wings are well exposed.
Those ruby red spots running along its side look great..
Love that curled up probiscus too :)

This Swallowtail is really gorgeous and your capture excellent! I love its profile with the proboscis rolled up and the long elegant legs! A fine low POV too and a lovely composition.
Many thanks and have a nice weekend, Ulla

A gorgeous swallowtail - my favorite colors. You captured it with the legs, antennae and wings in a wonderful position on the leaf. The black is excellent and the red markings which you show in fine detail are lovely. Beautiful composition against the lovely blurred background.

Bonito trabajo Peter, donde has conseguido plasmar bien la belleza de esta delicada mariposa. Bonitos contrastes y colores. El foco te quedó algo adelantado.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

What a beauty you have pictured. Brilliant subject and amazing its reproduction. POV is very attractive. Exposure of the butterfly, sharpness of the insect image, blurriness of the nice surroundings are superb. Well done. My kind regards.

A magnificent specimen shown in all his glory.
That showy black and red thorax, with those beautiful wings.
But what strikes me most about this shot is the arrangement of all the "lines" formed by the legs, antennae, and proboscis.
A beautiful composition with a lovely OOF BG.
TFS. : )

You deserve each of your points over and over. You are an excellent photographer with lots of talent. Wonderful capture of this Swallowtail. Excellent depth of field that keeps the whole butterfly in perfect focus but blurrs the background notably. Vibrent colours and awesome patterns on the wings. As usual a flawless presentation with superb sharpness. Truly precise in every aspect, with excellent framework. I appreciated looking at this beauty.

Mooie opname van deze vlinder,die ik volgens mij wel eens in een vlindertuin heb gezien.
Goede detailering in de vleugels en mooie natuurlijk kleuren.

this is a beautiful capture of the swallowtail and with such good details especially the nectar feeding tube coiled up as it is.Butterflies look delicate but that is not really the case as they really are very tough little creatures and can survive in conditions that would be hard for we humans to.The colour scheme this butterfly is eye catching as red on black gives a very strong look to anything with those colours.Thanks for giving us this view to enjoy.

Interesting species of Papilionidae, not too colourful but with nice mosaic of colours. I like profile POV, sharpness and pose of the insect :)
Also note is informative :)
All the best and TFS!

that's so beautiful, I love this butterfly very much. So sad that we can see this beauty only in butterfly-houses - but there we can enjoy is so much. I love to see the tongue as a spiral, lovely.
Thanks and greetings
