Really like both of these shots, but I favour the second since it shows how much of the leave its eaten... Again, well-composed... exposure and clarity is perfect! Thanks! Ned

I especially like three, but these are all great... four would have been a killer of photograph if you could have got the butterfly a slightly different angle than head on... just a thought. Well done, Mole. Ned

It is your use of depth of field, good equipment, and your skills that really make #2 a hit with me... love the yellow... Gosh, you really show how background/depth of field are so very important as a means for drawing one's eyes to the subject. Well done. Ned

Great series Mole,

that snout butterfly is a new one for me, great dragons to.
Last week I've been sorting out my collection and came to the 'rather disturbing' fact that I only have shots of 5 different types.
There has been a lot of talk that the diversity of nature is real low where I live and that's again a proof of it.

ps: love the shot of junior

cheers

Ronny

I always love clicking into your series as I know there is going to be an interesting story and some cracking shots. You didn't disappoint. Wonderful !

I like that tiger swallowtail but it would have been cool to catch those teardrop bits at the bottom of the wings as well. Still probably better than I could capture though. Thanks for sharing another beautiful series.
