Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

I'm saving up for a real macro lens, so in the meantime I'm shooting very big bugs. This one was big.

Wonderful colour. The Swallowtail appears to be floating over the flowers. Oooh, I can only imagine what you will do with a macro, Cat

Big and beautiful. Very nice dof - he does appear to float. I find them very hard to do when they half open their wings - think you have nailed this one well. Viv
