Spicebush Swallowtail Papilio troilus on periwinkle flower.

The wind was lightly blowing and the Spicebush never stopped flitting her wings, this was one shot out of about 20, 3 were keepers of this beautiful b-fly.

Cropped, cloned out a bright white partial flower near the bottom, played with selective coloring a smidge to drop the greens down a little in brightness.

Lovely composition and the blur is true to the subject.

This works well for me. So often we see lovely perfectly focused, sharp shots of butterflys, but in reality, they always seem to be flitting about and moving, even when they pause to feed. So this does them justice, in my opinion. And the bokeh is lovely!

Feels like I'm flying along with the butterfly. What a wonderful effect.

This one works. It has a blurry effect yet it isn't just a blurred shot, if that makes sense. It has a dreamy quality and I like that we are following the butterfly instead of just observing him. Nice colors. If it were mine I might play with the green a smidge to heighten it - maybe reduce the black of the selective yellow or green, or just play with the hue adjustment. Love the pinky purples.

Quite lovely! I would have guessed she was flying through the scene rather than perched, what great motion!

Nice image. I like the motion in the butterfly's wings!
