That is a very good shot.
Clear and well positioned :)
I love the The Old World Swallowtail, Common Yellow Swallowtail or just the Swallowtail, what ever one wishes to call it :D

I'm amazed with the clarity of this shot. I've got a shot of a swallowtail as well, but the focus is nothing near this.
I love how it appears to be starring right into the camera.

yes of course, because the insects are sleeping and you can get so close as you want. and after cold nights dew covers them.

I saw plenty of these swallowtails in Crete last week, but I didn't manage to capture them since they never stood still for long. P: Great photo though, as always!

Wow, this is really beautiful.
Such shallow DOF for f9... Is it because of the 150mm? :D I have no experience with such lenses so I'm asking stupid question :D
