Scarce Swallowtail

By mattberry    
Scarce Swallowtail, taken during a wildlife tour I was leading in Greece. There were loads of these on the wing, a joy to watch!

The flower is a bit in the way in this shot, couldn't compose it differently though as was shot straight through a chain link fence with my 300mm lens. All things considered I quite like the end result.
