During my enforced absence from site last month, Swallow decided to emerge from his chrysalis, unfortunately whilst I was not there, so I couldn't capture his emergence. However, having found him the evening of his emergence on the floor of my bedroom, he very kindly agreed to rest on my verandah overnight, allowing me to take some images of him the next morning before flying off to join his friends. V.4 shows him as a chrysalis, taken on 14th November 2012.
