Giant Swallowtail

Papilio cresphontes

100-400 4.5-5.6 II
1/1600s, f/7.1
iso 800
Hand held, natural light

I'm loving the Tithonia as a butterfly magnet and perch.

Comments and suggestions always welcome.
Good light,

Beautiful clean background and a lovely, colorful combination. I think that butterfly was showing off for you- a perfect pose nd the illusion that it is looking at you! (I have no idea if they can see humans....) ;)

Very nice, it's funny how some flowers are particularly attractive to butterflies.
