Without a doubt one of the palest "Pterourus glaucus" I've ever seen...

    While wandering around in my meadows I first thought this had to be a
    "Pterourus eurymedon" (Pale Tiger Swallowtail), but they only exist west of
    the Rocky Mountains and the wing patterns in this one don't match that
    species. "Eurytides marcellus" (the b&w Zebra Swallowtail) crossed my mind
    but the wing shape and patterns don't match that in the least. It has to be
    a "Pterourus glaucus" (Eastern Tiger Swallowtail), an almost-white variant.
    A rare sight indeed.

    In flight but I clipped a bit of wingtip.

    Nice that it lit upon the white wildflowers for hue comparison.

    Camera optics at 735mm EFL in tele-macro mode, shot handheld. A +2 diopter
    close-up filter stacked behind a 1.7x telextender for adequate
    subject-distance relief. An good method for capturing the more skittish and
    flighty species, which Swallowtails often are. Boosted the contrast a bit
    in editing due to hazy lighting which blew out some white on the
    wildflowers but that's not what is important so it doesn't matter to me.

    How can something look like crap in the corners when everything in the
    corners is blurred from bokeh in the first place? You truly are a moron of
    maximum proportions, aren't you.

    But since you want "to bet", here's a 1:1 crop from a central area of that
    image with in-focus details. Just like the rest of the main subject.

    Oh dear, look at how "that's a lot of added glass", on a P&S camera no
    less, has ruined the clarity.

    You FUCKINGLY IGNORANT AND UNTALENTED MORON. Go cry in your beer some more
    about how you wasted all that money on that crap DSLR gear of yours.

    LOL!

    Correct. That is why the usage of "... when everything in the
    corners is blurred from bokeh ... " is more than a correct application of
    the term. Had the situation been explaining the blurred areas from
    camera-shake, or from a real-time visual image due to improperly focused
    eyes, etc. THEN and ONLY THEN would your picayune trolling have had any
    credibility. You do you have your lawyers all lined up, don't you? I'd tell
    you what's in store for you, but that would only be ruining the surprise.
    Especially after you have publicly admitted to stealing the photos of
    others and presenting them as you own. Do it again!

    ROFLMAO!

    That's not CA you fucking moron. If it was CA then all the white
    wing-scales right next to it and other contrasting areas would also have
    the reddish and bluish borders. Those are wing-scale colors in that one
    small section that you ignorantly want to wish was CA. And I'm not
    surprised that you think it's over-sharpened. That's what happens when all
    you've ever seen are those muddy images of yours and have never used camera
    gear that captures details down to the pixel level.

    You just get sadder and sadder.
