Thanks for your likes, and I like this one of yours. Not only accurate but also artistic.


I don't know anything. But I know other things.

I like butterflies with signs of age and experience.
Here is well worn viceroy butterfly, Limenitis archippus.

A more recent set of pictures. Viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus). Focus stacked from a few hand-held pictures, plus various touch ups with the help of layer masks.

This is a Swallowtail Butterfly (Papilio machaon) that I raised from a kit. After photographing the critter I released her into my yard. Image taken in Bacoli, Italy in May of 2020.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT, E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI and Clarity in that order.
