Lovely shot Troddles!
I hate butterflies though - their caterpillars have just taken out every leaf on my gooseberry bush in 24hours!

Thanks Louise :-)
I'm so sorry Meanie, you must have vandal butterflies.....the only caterpillars I have to watch out for is the usual large white.....and they get the "squash".

The irony of a caterpillar is that when they turn into a beautiful butterfly (or moth) we forgive them their past sins!!

Nice thing about the Swallowtail it stays around with the wings wide open and so you have time to take a decent shot.
