A photo from this morning.
The rare Swallowtail butterfly, an amazing sight at any time.
Swallowtail Butterfly are our largest species of butterfly measuring from wing tip to wing tip 6-8cm.
amazing photo - I've never seen a butterfly measuring 6 - 8 cm, hope to someday. Good shot, great focus
Certainly a rare sight up here, so very welcome to see such a pristine specimen, so well captured.
Great shot and good to know we still have them here. Well done
I was going to make the trip over next Friday, to have another go at these beauties, but work and the prospect of unsettled weather has knocked it in the head.
Always next year
thx guys and girls for the comments and votes.
Adrian they are still around and will be for the next month or so, only the males are out at the moment so you have plenty of time left.
Superb image Ian,
I must get myself down to the reserve sharpish if the Swallowtails are about.
