A Swallowtail butterfly gliding through the canopy...
1/1600@f5 ISO 200
Gorgeous shot. Ness
Absolutely outstanding capture!
My wife sat beside me summed this up in one word....WOW
I`m with Mike`s wife....WOW incredible and very beautiful.
Stunning! I don't think I have seen a butterfly photo like this before; a very innovative shot. Hope it gets the votes. Chris
Amazing shot Tim. Never seen anything like it before!
Interesting how it doesn't bother to tuck it's legs up nicely for flight, just lets them hang wherever!
Was this at the spot we found below your place? I noticed the Scarce Swallowtailks glided a lot there and I did for half a minute think about trying to capture it. I was never crazy enough to actually have a go tho.
great shot well captured
I've no idea how you managed to capture this but it's superb! Love the colours, the lighting and the presentation as well as the subect matter, a well deserved EC! Jane
Absolutely stunning capture Tim, only you could capture something as elegant as this.

Faints...!! well done... perfect and much deserved EC...!!!
Fantastic image, superb detail, colours and dof.
Wow, thank you all for the great comments.
I have been trying a shot like this for years and finally found the technique! They circle around overhead for hours a bit like buzzards, but it's just a matter of luck whether they come in close enough to get this close.
Most of my previous shots the butterfly was much further away in the scene.
That's an astonishing photograph Tim! Has it been done before? I can imagine how you felt when you caught it. Brilliant!
Utterly beautiful! Congratulations on the EC - it's fully deserved!
What an amazing shot!
You might of taken years to get it....but boy did you get it!
The colours are superb and great b/g.
Your work is truly inspirational
Congrats on your well deserved EC.

Well deserved EC Tim. Hope you get the canvas print now!
I tried commenting earlier but the system was operating read only...
Love the shot, the blue background makes it for me, as well as it being difficult to capture insects in flight. Well deserving of praise.
Thanks for the award Julian! It means just as much to me as an EC! Thanks also to Cole and Alley! Great idea these user awards!
John, I think the standard is a little high for me to expect any canvas these days!
Again thank you all for your generous comments!
Quite possibly the most beautiful photo Ive ever seen. And I truly mean that.
