Papilio dardanus from Africa, once again I choose a larger aperture so I could put the background out of focus and natural green.

Hi Luis

Splendid capture is a very well taken shot!
Excellent POV, super sharp details, great lighting and lovely colors. I also love the perfect DOF, showing all the butterfly in full focus, while stil leaving a blurry BG.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS
