This is one of the 'smaller' swallowtails - quite a bit smaller than the ones I'm used to (and a lot less easy to photograph), with a smaller body and less elongated wings / tails.
I was in two minds whether to load this or a mirrored version which I like just as much. Ah well, here goes.....

Thank-you for looking at, commenting on and voting for the previous photo.

I like the angle, looking up to see the wings against the sky.

Great shot. Probably my most wanted butterfly so any angle would do for me.

Thank-you for the comments. At the risk of doing the wrong thing by drawing attention to other
photos in the pf, the thing that interests me about this specimen is that it is smaller then the ones photographed a few years ago:
Larger
whereas this specimen photographed, admittedly from a slightly different angle:
Smaller
is less elongated, body is smaller etc.
Both types were around this year.
The only comment in my book on different types refers to the Corsican Swallowtail (we aren't exactly close to Corsica) which has a 'wavy black band' on the forewing - but the patterns on these two types look the same to me. Confused - perhaps the small ones are just sufering from the poor summer...

regards
Pete
