Swallow Tail

By moe_101
This was taken in Side, Turkey - such a beautiful butterfly and very large. This was the first time I'd ever seen one outside of a butterfly zoo and I was really taken with it, I followed it around for quite sometime as it flitted around the garden. I'm not sure which swallow tail it is - so if anyone knows I'd appreciate you telling me. Comments and critique always welcome.

Thanks so much for all the really encouraging comments on my last upload.
