The sunflower against the blue of the sky in itself makes for a super shot but the presence of the swallowtail is surely a liberal helping of icing on your photographic cake, Patti.
Beautifully lit to allow the insect's shadows to be cast and all captured in fine detail.

A combination of three things rather scarce hereabouts of late - blue sky, sunflower and any sort of butterfly! Thankfully the weather has improved but looks like the sunflowers we usually get as a wee offering from the birds have passed on summer 2012. All the more welcome viewing this so beautiful image then. Has to be my favourite of the series so far.

Having the sun flower sitting in the top corner of the sky makes an excellent composition for the butterfly to sit in. Effective presentation as well, Patti.
