Female Tiger Swallowtail dusted (Rudbeckia purpurea)

This female Tiger Swallowtail looks like she's been dusted with blue and yellow pollen. The yellow dust on her head and body is really pollen but the blue dust is actual wing scales

Amazing close-up. I can actually see the felt like texture of her black wings.! What type of camera do you use?

Thank you Flcrazy. You should see them on a larger scale..........so much more detail than these little pics. For most of my pics I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ20. That's 5 mgp. I just point and shoot. Before that I used a Nikon 995 that I love for real close macro shots, but I hardly ever use that anymore. It's so slow compared to the Panasonic. That's only 3.34 mgp I still use the Nikon for my nightime moth photos though. But gosh, I think they have 10 mgp out now !
