The poor thing looks a little worse for wear! A brilliant capture though - I prefer version 1, where the pale butterfly is against a dark background.

What an absolute beauty, wonderfully captured by you (as always). Not easy getting these little guys in their natural surroundings - I found a Scarce Swallowtail in Bulgaria but it was high up in a tree and I just wasn't able to get a decent shot.

Evenin' Carol,
Excellent butterfly togging
You must be well chuffed

A fair day today, but the odd shower expected
A day forecast without breeze tomorrow and up to around +17C
Butterfly togging here we go

Incredible detail in both images and I too like the dew droplets on the budding flower.
Are they two different butterfles? The colours of the wings are slightly different, male & female, perhaps?
Wonderous work as always, Carol Smile
