The poor thing looks a little worse for wear! A brilliant capture though - I prefer version 1, where the pale butterfly is against a dark background.

What an absolute beauty, wonderfully captured by you (as always). Not easy getting these little guys in their natural surroundings - I found a Scarce Swallowtail in Bulgaria but it was high up in a tree and I just wasn't able to get a decent shot.

Two beauties here Carol, but go for V1 as my fave, for the colours and the butterfly stands out better from it's background Smile

Two super captures Carol.

So beautiful, lovely detail. SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Incredible detail in both images and I too like the dew droplets on the budding flower.
Are they two different butterfles? The colours of the wings are slightly different, male & female, perhaps?
Wonderous work as always, Carol Smile
