[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another point of view from Iphiclides podalirius.
The same day, in the same place, one of these lovely species standing alone far from the others.
I was standing there looking all these butterflies over 1 hour, drinking, flying, talking and watching the sun.
All together and one alone is the conclusion for that day.
I think the appropriate title for these one isn't "forever friends" as I titled the previous photo but "forever alone"

Very good photo of this Papilionidae!
It's an Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus, 1758), from the Papilionidae Papilioninae family.
Known as Scarce Swallowtail in english.
Very good POV and DOF!
Good on details too!

Colours and Lightning: Excellent. I like the presentation too.
The shade of the butterfly makes a good contrast.


Pretty, well telling shot, Thodoris.
I very much like the shadow and the diagonal composition.
Difficult pose of the b-fly, very well managed to get it sharp.
Thank you! Best regards,

Beautilful butterfly shot Thodoris. Very good colors, good DOF/POV and very good sharpness. Well done. Thank you for posting.
