Wayne, I like this one even better, I think. The composition works nicely, in my opinion, with the stalks on the right, which seems to frame in the flower and BF. Nicely done.

Thanks Shirley, appreciate your review. Some of the other shots capture the butterfly straight on but I like the side view composition better because the body is more visible.

Wayne: Good proportion of subject and perch in the frame. I do like this wing position and the overall sharpness of the swallowtail. Top notch. >=))>

Thanks Bill, I appreciate your review. I believe this flower is also called a Spider Plant.

Wayne, the sharpness of the Swallowtail and the flower look very good.
