lost a chunk of wing but didn't seem too phased by it
You had me resorting to Dictionary.com with that word, Grouser . . had me right fazed, Bro.

Not often do you get the chance to photograph both wings outstretched this way. You did well.

Great angle, DOF, colors, textures, shapes

Nice shot of whats left of this beauty, it looks like the Bee/Wasp is taking the name literally .

A fine close up of this pretty butterfly.

Very nice macro, and excellent capture the position of the wings is superb. (They are a little damaged.) The DOF is perfect with a magnificent bokeh.
Have a good week.

I like how you caught the bee peeking through the missing part of the butterfly. Lovely image.

@Ruthiebear: I think the bee is in front of the butterfly. Sheer luck that it happened by :)
Beautiful close up. It seems like at the end of summer the poor swallowtails looks so raggedy. They have been through a lot dodging birds all summer! I like how you captured the bee also!
