A European Swallowtail Papilio machaon in Greece during a wildlife tour I was leading. This individual was doing a regular patrol of a warm hill-top glade, then perching to rest a few moments, before taking off again. I managed to creep up to it for a few shots.

Thanks for looking!

Tremendous colour from the backlighting; like a stained glass window!
