What a nature study class I'm in today - Trev's moving butterfly, Johnke's spiders and now your beautiful Swallowtail!

I think we all wish we lived in Crete, Carol.
I couldn't give your skipper a UA, so this one's half for him and half for the swallowtail.

What a stunning set Carol, these are amongst your very best images. It looks like you've been getting some tips from Bunbeam in v4 and v5, talking of which she'll be uploading on here again in the not too distant future. You are in need of some competition!Grin
