[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this Swallowtail (Papilio machaon) was hanging around the zinnias for several days. it had a winspan of about 7cm. The damaged wings didn't seem to to bother it.
The colorful caterpillars dined on fennel and parsley, some preferred the leaves of the lemon trees.

Hi, Marialuisa, nice picture.
Well composed, good POV and nice colours.
I think you have cropped it little to much.
Well done.

Hello Marialuisa

Sorry for the quick critique. Not enought time this morning. Nice shot, but I agree with Gert about the crop. TFS. :-)
