[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tiger swallowtail butterflies (Papillios) are very beautiful. Maybe you know that they are strong fliers too. I captured this one on a flower against the wall of St. Peter and St.Paul Monastery. It was very battered - as you can see its wings are very worn and have lost their swallowtail fringes. Obviously this small pilligrim has flewn many miles in the wind until it reached the holly place...

I have to point that this small hero was very strong and agile - he was moving fast all the time from flower to flower...

Много красиви снимки напоследък, но аз съм толкова зает последните 15 дни, че освен да кача и погледна малко снимки нямам време за нищо. След около 2 дни ще съм свободен и ще ги зачета и с коментари

Hallo Anton,
it's nice that you show a picture of a worn swallow tail. Although it has lost a little bit of its beauty, it is worth to be shown.
Noise in the background and also on the flower is rather high.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Anton,
Nice simple composition of this butterfly on the red flower. Pale color of the wall as BG makes the butterfly and flower stand-out. Image is noisy, it will be great if this was corrected prior to posting.
Nice shot.
