There have been many Swallowtail butterflies in my garden this year. What a joy they are..
*****THANK YOU FOR VISITING ANITA'S PHOTOBLOG!*****
I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:

This is a lovely image - folks often get over-technical and a bit forensic photographing insects but you have retained the simple pleasure of it all in this smooth, natural composition.
