As promised , new post with open wings of the Lime Butterfly !!!

A large tailless swallowtail that is mostly creamy yellow and black. Sexes alike. In freshly emerged specimens, the cream yellow is almost fluorescent, but this lovely brightness gradually changes into a dull rusty orange with age.
It is found wherever its larval host plant, citrus, grows.It is not a butterfly of the high canopy and is more likely to be seen on low bushes and shrubs. It flies very fast around noon, being somewhat sluggish in the early morning hours.

it's a differcult butterfly for taking photo when you want to do it good. The composition is nice,I think the pov can be done some better, the dof is good, the colours are nice, well I like the good job.

Good sharp capture, wingtip to wingtip and the antennae too. Something not many people seem to achieve so well done. The background is a bit obtrusive but its not always easy to get a nice blurred plain background.

Nice work!


Hello Goutham,
clear and well composed picture of that shy and beautiful swallowtail in its typical natural settings, making perfect use of the available space in a very dynamic way.
Great! Thank you, and best regards,
