This beauty was absolutely intent on feeding on the clover flowers in the grass at our Tuscan holiday home and let me get really close. This one has only a small crop.
Thanks for looking

A rather beautiful close up photograph Jason depicting the rather gorgeous looking Swallowtail, beautiful natural colours and rather defined detail, superb.

Thank you all so much for your comments and particularly to Kate for your UA which is much appreciated. I did take about a hundred or so of this one so there had to be one or two that were ok Wink.
I may show one or two more in due course!
