Love it. Lots of personality in this shot with the swallowtail seemingly getting swallowed up by the day Lilly. Beautiful colors. Nice clean background. Great job, Leslie.   Posted: 09/05/2023 17:46:13

Great shot!!! That is a butterfly that really gets into his "job"! The image itself is superb! Sharp, crisp, and perfectly focused! and your title is whimsical to match the photo's action! Very nice.   Posted: 09/13/2023 10:27:32

I love this different type of butterfly shot. The swallowtail really stands out, as opposed to a monarch that maybe would have blended in too much. Nice and sharp and done well.   Posted: 09/22/2023 14:17:32

In case you didn't know, I have a weakness for butterflies, my fav subject. And your photo is one of the best butterfly photos I've seen. Well done.   Posted: 09/23/2023 13:47:22
