This is one of the 'smaller' swallowtails - quite a bit smaller than the ones I'm used to (and a lot less easy to photograph), with a smaller body and less elongated wings / tails.
I was in two minds whether to load this or a mirrored version which I like just as much. Ah well, here goes.....
Thank-you for looking at, commenting on and voting for the previous photo.
